Alright, thanks! I'll tell everyone how they do. The mother colony has the white showing from the cuts, what should I do with them?

Keep it any way. It may also recover.

So here are some pics of the frags, are they good now? Would it be easier to tell what it is, like a tort?

I'm not sure what species of acropora it is, but when you are cutting it up like this, you want to cut into the living tissue, and not bring any of the dead tissue to the new frag plug.

For one of them I did but I don't have the pic of it. Should I put some superglue on them then? They seem to be doing a lot better but I'm not sure how far the polyps are supposed to extend. They are showing though.

Do you need to dose for those things? I keep acropora and don't need to dose for anything.
