Best way to attach macros?

    So during a water change I knocked some of my nemastoma off its rock. It's a decently big piece for my tank, and I'd like to just attach it somewhere else and let it keep growing. I threw it in my fuge for now.

    How do you guys attach macros to rock? I see a lot of people use putty, but I'm not sure if there's one particular kind that is best. So I'm turning to you macro experts. :) Hit me up to links of your favorite products, if you've got one

    I like the sand which between two small pieces of rock rubble, then wrap with a rubber band method myself :)

    Refugium?
    I have some dragons tongue that I superglued to a piece of rubble and then stuck onto a piece of rock. When it gets too big I just move the rubble to a different spot. I also have some sandwiched between rocks, and others that I let free float. The overflow has been a good spot for growth for me on some of my macros but I have to trim it back quite often so it doesn't clog.

    Seems too cool to stick in the fuge long term.

    Here's the piece:

    It's escaped the rubber band twice, though that may also be because I don't have great rubble to attach it to. And the clowns like to pick at anything in the tank. It's a slippery little sucker

    I have a frag plug I can give you tomorrow that you can attach it to.
