Fragging a Star Polyp colony - (10 pics)

I figured since there's been more than one question recently about gluing frags, and since I had the camera and tripod handy last night while making some frags to trade, here's a brief series of snapshots.

Work area, tools, glue, and rubble prepared and ready.


Drying a piece of rubble.


Cutting a frag from the colony mat.


Gently drying the frag.


Applying Super Glue Gel to the rubble.


Applying Super Glue Gel to the underside of the frag.


Gently holding the frag to the rubble for 10 seconds.


Placing the new frag back in the bowl.


4 new frags completed.


All 4 frags back in the tank with polyps extended.

Nice work. I have fragged alot of things but never taken pics. You have shown that something that might seem hard is really easy.

Well done.

Glad I could give a little back to the place that has helped me so much... especially you mods.
All of my successes so far with SW is a direct result of all of your help.
Thanks bunches!
