Attaching Devils hand/Finger leather

Ok, I have a devils hand coral that refuses to attach to anything. I tried rubberbanding it down but the rubber bands cut through it, I tried pinning it down but that didnt work. Can I superglue it to the rock I want to place it on?

dwculp...I had the same problem...what I ended up doing was using zip ties...and just bringing them down close enough to snug the base of the coral to the rock but not so tight as to pinch it. Does that make sense...? Anyway...it can take weeks to attach...mine took almost a month !

HTH
