can you throw away frags

Hi,

I wanted to know if you frag a coral in order to prune it, do i have to save it or can i just throw it away. I somehow have mixed messages because in the first place i want to reduce the amount of coral, but then is it humane?

TIA

P-MAN

Why not set up a small frag tank to let them attach. Then send them to me. Free. Or better yet send $10 with them so I can go to lunch. Yeah, that's a better idea. Oh, and send a 6pack too.

I know, for real...instead of throwing the frags away, give them away or sell them! I'm sure many people here would be interested.

Availbility might be an issue if your fragging something tahts somewhat common or even undesirable. If you check with yoru local LFS you might be able to get a few $ for frags.

Problem with a prop tank can be if you dont have the room or funds to set it up.
