Kenya Tree growing out of control

I have a kenyan tree coral and it is growing uncontrollably. It drops branches every two days or so and continues to grow. I've fragged them but I can't keep up. It grows faster than a weed. It does look good though.

Terrible to be a victim of your own success!

Kenyan frags

Here's a pic of the frags (about 6 of them). The mother tree just dropped another branch yesterday. It doesn't stop. At least 2 or 3 a week.

Not sure if it is exactly the same; mine was sold to me as an African Bush, have exactly the same issue though, branches swell up and drop off! Some weeks it's like a plague in my 24G Nano!

Have 4 LFS not far so normally at least one can accept the frags, I dropped of 8 last time round
