Hey, I've had some success with placing the mushroom in a glass jar (like a small candle jar) with rubble in it and covering the top will a mesh top of some sort. Use a rubberband to keep the mesh attached to the jar. The mesh will allow the mushroom to access flow and nutrients within the tank, as well as allowing it to attach naturally to the live rock rubble in the jar. A rubberband directly to the mushroom might damage the coral. A quick solution might be coral glue, but I've tried this in the past and all in all you have to remember that corals are live animal and mushrooms especially are going to move until they are happy with the flow/nutrients/lighting they are receiving. Hope this helps!

Very easy just get a small container, with a lot of very small rocks, them put the mushroom inside the container and put the container on the corner of your tank or on a place where you don't have to much flow, and just leve there 2 or 3 weeks will be attach to one of the small rocks

**I answered this above I think**

I used the mesh off an old net and crushed up one of my rocks I had a small plastic container and drilled holes in it he seems to be happy should I check him once in awhile or just let him alone for a couple weeks
