Can you just break the rock in half or do you want the rock intact?

i can care less what happens to that piece its on, wether it be used as individual squares for each coral or totaly destroyed. I would like each torch coral to be separated so ill be able to place them individually where i would like.

Are they separate heads on a piece of flat rock? Can't you just break one off? I would think that if you grabbed it low and applied some sideways pressure it would break the glue/epoxy/whatever bond to the rock.

ya they are seperate heads some even have multiple heads. Should i keep some of the crete its attached to for a base? if i break the whole coral piece off i fear they are too small to just place on a lr in the tank.

I would break them each off and mount them to another smallish piece of LR and then put that on your tank rock.

great idea thanks guys.

How would i go about propagating this polyp. I want to send it off to a friend. From what I understand I would just cut a few attached polyp(from the base) and super glue to a rock. Is this correct?
