Propigating Corals...

I have a rather large Colt Coral.. It is absolutly beautiful.

I would like to get it spread out a bit, in other places in my tank.
Is there a suggested method of making cuttings? Or can that even be done with this coral?

From what I know, they are pretty hardy, but this is one of only 3 types of coral I have (Cabbage, and a mushroom are the other 2), and I don't want to do anything that will cause perm. damage to it.

All in all, at full "bloom", its about 6" in diameter, and about 5 to 6" high, from base to tips. The "trunk" is about 1, maybe 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

Water conditions are as pristine as I can keep them, flow and lighting are good.. This colt coral does great, and looks beautiful..

Just want more of em, and if it can be cut and spread, it would save me a TON of $$'s.

www.garf.org This site shows exactly how to frag colt corals and I have done it with success. It was actually quite easy.
Good luck! Kat
