    Please help! How do I attach a heliofungia to a rock or do not need to do it?

    Heliofungia should sit on a fairly fine-grained sand bed. They shouldn't be manually attached to anything.

    They start out attached to the reef but in their natural lifecycle they detach when they are still smaller than we see them in the hobby. It probably wouldn't kill them to be attached but they are sandbed critters. Some of the long tentacled varieties can actually puff up pretty big to extract themselves from the sand if they get partially buried.
