Yes garf.org is a great way to get some ideas but in myexperience they seem to propagate pretty easily by themselves. I've even see a few tanks almost overtaken by them. What kind of additives are you using in your tank? A good invert food is a great way to start and make sure you have lots of light.

Nice mushroom i would let them spread and split themselves until you have a few before you start to frag.

aragamilk is like adding water to the tank...JMO. I would recommend B-Ionic 2 part supplement or dripping kalk in. JMHO. I have been using B-Ionic and my corals love it. I have just heard too much trash about aragamilk. HTH

Use a razor blade or a scissors, thats what most people use. I have also heard of people using food processors, you know the things that chop up tomatoes or whatever into tiny pieces. All of them would work. Razor or scissors is your best bet!

I fragged shrooms the way garf says. I bought new scissors(just for tank use now), a 1/4 yard of bridal veil(walmart) and some rubberbands. I cut each shroom in 1/4's then put them in a tupperware lid full of cc and covered them with the veil and tied it on with the rubberbands. Set this in a low flow area for two weeks to let them attach to the cc, then you can superglue(gel) them to a rock and they will grow. My 20g now has shrooms all over from this. I did the kind you have and the fuzzy kind. Plus when you cut the old one off the rock a new one grows back from the stump.
