You'd be suprised how resiliant these coral are providing water quality is up to snuff. You can seperate the entire crown from the stalk but I wouldn't glue it. Doubt it would work anyway. Either place it in a shallow plastic bowl in a low flow area covered with veil material and rubble in the bottom or veil it to an actual rock. I will not matter if you frag
the crown in one piece or 6.
BTW the stalk is about 3" around can it still be cut
Yup. Just use a new sharpe exacto blade. The ones I prefer are the disposable retractable ones you can get at the hobby store. Very cheap and provided they are rinsed and dried after use you should get a few uses from each one. Just be sure you cut smoothly through the stock and try not to rip the coral. It won't kill it if you do rip, it will just take longer to heal/attach. If your feeling brave, the stock can also be fragged. When I frag
toadstools, I usually cut the whole thing away from the main rock leaving abou 1" and then frag
the rest. You end up with more to sell. Your choice eiether way.
For now I would stick with what you feel most comfortable with
