Talking coral fragging

So my hairy mushroom corals and my normal mushroom corals are getting huge so I wanted to frag them. Anyone have any tips? Also I wanted to know if you could create multicolored colored mushrooms by fragging them. I have tons of bright purple and orange i'm willing to try to frag.

no. you can't connect 2 different mushrooms together. they are soft and cannot be attached by gluing. they also won't grow together like that. i would just use a razor knife or coral cutters and scrape the mushrooms off of the rock, trying to scrape a little bit of the rock with them. then glue that to something else.

What I did was take a toenail clipper the one that looks like a little wire cutter and carefully clip the rock, I found it works pretty well then glue it frag plug or another rock.
