You take a berry container (ones with holes in them) or get a small container and put holes in it. Fill it with rubble and put the rics in. Then cover with a net or a lid with holes so water gets in there but they they can not get out even in a high flow areas. Give them some time and they will attach themselves and then glue the rubble down where you want them.

 

I have also been able to get them to stick with alot of sg but they are so slimey it does not always work.

Just be careful... I had one that escaped when I was trying to attach him to some rubble and he landed on my duncan. Duncan ate most of him (he was small), he died, and then it took over a week for my Ducan to recover!!

 

I've heard good success stories with "wedding veil" mesh holding one down over a rock. I made a homemade contraption with a dremmel and a vitmin dispenser and it seems to be working well ;)

i find a hole in a piece of live rock where i want the ric to be and suff the ric in the hole, cover with a small piece of rubble and wait a couple days. it's worked 2 times i've tried it. i know that's not great success but it's worked for me. i stuff the ric gently into the hole, the hole should not be too deep.
