    My Corals

    I thought I would try and get a few piccies of the corals I have

    Blue zoas


    Golden Bush Coral or Litophyton Mother colony


    I still have a fragment of this hammer with three to four heads hopefully will grow into larger number ready fro fragging


    Gorgonian mother colony


    A frag I acquired from my LFS a nice little bubble polyp -


    I will be posting a picture of this bubble to show you how much it has grown.



    I am also very keen to get people to post pictures of their mother colonies - I would like to encourage people to grow good sized colonies of corals before they are fragged and passed on.

    How do you take frags of the bubble coral.Do you use the rubber band method around the mother colony and wait for it to divide??

    My Corals

    Interesting - I havent yet got the frag big enough to divide into further polyps - this was from a bail out at the LFS - the guy there saved it for me.

    It is getting big and I hope a new mouth will form so I could use the rubber band method you will have to elaborate on that

    otherwise I thought a sharp cutting saw blade would help or a scapel

    My Corals

    When i first bought my bubble it started to receide in the middle i just cut the rock in 2.It's now got 2 the point where i'm goin to have to frag a bit off to keep it in sittu..my idea which i'm sure i've seen somewhere is to put the rubber band over a portion of the coral at the size you want.Wait for the 2 sides to go back then cut the rock!!think that's how it works..

    My Corals

    I will be propagating fungia plate corals in the future - I intend to frag any grown on daughter colonies from any I will be keeping.

    I will be collecting fungia plate corals for my next tank - perhaps a few more different colours - green (to be obtained), pink (to be obtained), orange (already have) and now red *my showpiece coral)
