That's awesome! I think you're going to end up with one spectacular coral in a few more months.

Very cool...I did something similar with some Pink Birds nest frags. I have 6 or so smallish pieces that I didin't feel like mounting so I just laid them on each other. They have all fused together and started shooting new branches straight up. I'll get a pic of it and post so you can see.

You can take a pair of scissors and cut about a 1" thick slice all the way around the rim, then cut that big piece into smaller pieces. The leather will slime up heavily and will look bad for a few days, but will recover.

I`m sure it will. They will get used to it though.

If you can get the leather out of the tank to cut it I strongly suggest doing it. Also it is a good idea to run some GAC on your system for a few days after putting the leather back in the tank.

Mine took about a week to fully heal from cutting it. It's getting about time to do it again.

Here is a quick shot of my frag experiment, Pink Birdsnest....

These were frags that I had laying on top of each other in my frag tank. I went to put them on plugs and when I picked up one piece they all came out. I decided to leave them alone and let them grow this way. The pics aren't that great but you can see that they are starting to send branches straight up. It should be an interesting looking coral in a few months.
