Thanks for the information and the pics Cmor!!! I've decided to wait and frag it when I upgrade to the 210. I would rather do it out of the tank and I wil have everything out of the 72 eventually. I've decided to cut the Acro behind it back some so it's not touching the toad.

If I could ever get the guts to do it I could have a ton of Frogspawn to sell as well. I just can't bring myself to cut it up. IT was my very first coral.

Well I have decided to run carbon on the tank and chop that toad up. I have a couple people interested in some of it and it is time to trim it back. I'll take pics of the process and post them here. I expect to end up with about 20 frags of toad so you guys better buy it from me! LOL JK.

Well since I have decided to chop the Toad up I picked up a Phosban reactor. Kent Marine Phos-Reactor. I've been wanting to pick one of them up for a while now and I guess today was the day. I have it loaded down with carbon and it's running in my sump right now. Here are a few pics.

I'm using a Maxi-Jet 1200 to move the water through the reactor. As you can kind of see from the last pic my water is pretty clear already. This is just running to take care of the nasty stuff I'm going to create when I cut on the Toad.

I guess I'm lucky, my toad fragged it'self. It willl start with a small piece getting a small "tear" in it, then it will progress to where the piece is hanging by just a little piece, so then I'll take it off and SG it to a new rock, I've got 2 large (on is 12" across min, the other is 10" min) and 8 to 10 small ones (some as small as a small marble and some as large as 3 to 4" across).

I was told if you frag a toad you MUST take it out of the tank while you are cutting it. Take it out lay it on a towel and make your cuts, place them on your new rocks (I use SG, but rubber bands work with low flow tanks) and place them back in the tank.

His rock is too big to take out of the tank till the new 210 is set up.
