Also- I've got a 9 lb rock that is completely covered in tyree meteor shower that I need to frag. What's the best way? It's so covered that the chalice on top of the rock is even being taken over. It's definitely time.

I saw that, and was drooling over it in you video! I have a nice 5"x 5" piece, but that one is huge. I've never fragged one, but depending how thick the base is, it may need to be cut with a wet saw. If its not too thick, you may be able to hit it with a chisel and hammer, from the top. It may damage the cut edge, but it would recover.
Really beautiful piece Jodi, really beautiful tank, actually!

Lol. Thanks. I have a wet band saw - but this rock is about a 8" diameter ball.

Maybe try to take some off the back with a chisel, until it will fit in the saw. It would be hard, If it's a solid rock, but not too bad, if it is somewhat porous.
Glad to hear the Achilles is doing well, sounds like it just had to get used to the new neighborhood!
Good luck with the fragging!

Thanks!

I have been fragging for three days now (what I could without using the band saw). Favites, ultra pink chalice, acro, birds of paradise, zoas, finger leather, lol. The list goes on forever. Taking a lot to the shop and cleaning up the tank.

Holy cow!!! I knew they were pricey, but that's insane. Naples is definitely a good place for a store!!! Wasn't it more millionaires per capita, than any other place on the country? It shows!!
Darn, my frags got to be worth about $100 by now!!
Well he was also purchasing an 8 pound rock too, right?

Yes. It's like a 9lb rock with a chailice on top that kept the meteor shower in less light as needed. The chalice is about 9-11 inches across in diameter as well. It's a bright green.

Ohh, didn't remember the Chalice from your video, just that amazing Cephastrea!
I didn't know they were medium light either, I've got mine up really high, and it is spreading well.
It was about 2" x 3" when I got it, now it's about 5" x 5". I'm under T5 though, but a lot of it! Maybe that's medium enough.
