Montipora

So I bought this new montipora piece yesterday and I looked great so I woke up this morning and my turbo snail knocked it over so I tried to glue it to a Rock and it broke, should I try to glue back on the the actual montipora piece it self or should I glue it to a different rock altogether, also how fast do they heal and grow

Glue the main piece where you want it and glue the broken piece to a frag disk or rock rubble and you have yourself a monti frag also growth will depend on the monti and the environment you give it but they can grow nearly an inch a month under perfect conditions.

Ya it would. First you would probably see a little tissue recession where you glue it on both pieces but over a few weeks it will re encrust over it but it'll more then likely leave a "seam" of growth. I think fragging it would be the better idea. Then you could either grow the new frag out to a size that you can frag it into a bunch of pieces and make your money back that you spent on the monti or trade the small frag for a new piece to a local reefer.

That more or less depends on the equipment you have. (lighting and amount of flow) but montis do good on the higher range of both.
