Thanks! What is the actual purpose to fragging? Sorry I am new to this. Is it basically growing a new coral from a cut off of another?

Haha! Yeah it's not the cheapest of hobbies! That's cool! I watched a video on YouTube about fragging one! It looks a bit brutal the way he just cuts it with scissors!

Yeah,but I don't think it hurts the coral as much as it hurts when we take out our credit cards.LOL

One serious note,certain corals can be dangerous when fragging and you need to take precautions with those.Always google fragging on the Internet by coral name before trying a particular coral to see if it is one of those.

Yeah probably not haha! It just doesn't look too good!

Thanks but I don't think I will be trying fragging for a long time! I just got two types of mushrooms about two weeks ago and today I got the Toadstool and a few free polyps from my lfs! I got a bit bold and asked for a cheaper bunch as I said I was a beginner and got them for free haha!
