Okay, so my urchin is really frustrating me by unglueing my frags from my rocks. Looking at the frags, the glue is sticking just fine to the coral/frag plug but nothing is sticking to the rock.

I saw a video showing where some people take a brush and scrub the rock first before glueing anything. Does that actually help? Do you guys do that and I’m just doing it wrong?
