Running out of room

Well I never thought I'd be sayign this but I have my 125, 44 pentagon, and 46 bow front. My problem is my 2 of my corals are growing so fast that I am fragging them at least once a month. 8O Now I have little rocks all over the place with corals on them. Would it be a good idea to convert my 46 into a coral grow out tank? Nothing in it but 2 clowns 2 pep's, and that big hitchhicker crab (the hariy one). I guess I need to try and sell some frags but I'm not to sure if I want to try and ship something live.

your lfs will probably buy the frags from you. saves you from trying to ship something live. other option would be a reginal forum where you could sell to someone who could meet you.

Check out the article by Logan on coral propagation in the articles section. You can put together a prop tank for pretty cheap. Kind of nice to sell something back to the LFS.

Just tell him you would be more than happy to do this if he gives away the frags to customers :P

Definitely check some other shops, my LFS gives me $5 for a small frag and $10 for a large, mounted on rock or shell of course. I wouldn't be too happy if my LFS told me to give them away. I'd find a new LFS, and tell him to go XXXX. I don't know about you but I easily spend $50-100 there a month and it would not be in his best interest to turn me down. Propose that to him and see what he says.

I trade for store credit. If the guy wants them for free, he is nuts

I set up a 10 gal frag tank. It took a while to get good growth from it but it is getting better. I have a fuge area in my sum that I put a mini pc light on for some shrooms. They don't like the 64 watts on my 10 gal.

If you have a reef group in your area, you could try that. I have been trading some lately with a local group here.

Good luck

It has but Bernie's is 40 + min away so I don't get out there as much as I'd like to.
