I;ve had some of my frags grow over and around their plugs in just a few months. I have a zooa issue, way too much already. lol Xeia will spread ike a plague, that I promise you. My frogspawn syarted with one head adn now has three after about 5 months.

Some corals grow very rapidly while some are very slow. Alot will depend on yoru lighting and water quality.

Yep, I just place them until they get large enough to glue the frag circle to a larger rock. I hate the frags with the pointy thing on the bottom, you have to find a good place to prop them in. I much prefer the flat discs.
