Frag

Hello All

I recently purchased a coral from petco and it has a mix on it. One mushroom, Kenya tree, two different Zoas, some pallys and a few things I'm unsure of. My camera sucks so this is the best photo I can get. What I'm wondering is it possible to frag the Kenya tree, mushroom, and the zoas onto frag disks so I can move them around instead of them all mixed on the same piece? I thought about breaking the piece up and do my best to move the pieces around but then I wondered about using a razor blade to but stuff off and put them on plugs. Thoughts and/or suggestions?

I would just use wire cutters or coral snips to cut the rock. It's just a piece of dead coral anyway, and should cut pretty easy. You can glue the rock pieces with the corals on them to disks if you want, but personally, I would toss the kenya tree right in the trash.

I have my Kenya sitting in a corner away from everything and just remove any loose branches I find.

I have had my Kenya tree for a while and it hasn't done anything besides open and close.

Problem with Kenya's is that branches break off to float away to other places in the tank. If you are not careful this process repeats itself to a point where your tank is overrun.

Well, when that happens it's time to break out the razor blade and super glue because a trip the the LFS is in the near future

Yeah ditch the Kenya. Mine spread everywhere. Its ugly and it takes up room for much cooler corals. I've cut all mine out but it keeps coming back.

Wow Kenya tree haters. I like mine. The flow in my tank takes limbs and deposits them in the dark.
