    Re: What corals are worth fragging

    crispydog, thanks for the info on postage, and sazmo thanks for the info on the corals. So does knowone ever post xenia I currently sale quite a bit of the red sea to friends and FS.

    Josh, I have asked on marinefishforum.co.uk if they can add this site to the coral section, but the main buy is away at the moment, so i'll have to get back to you on that. I dont mind asking a couple of my LFS if I can add a poster or two advertising this site.

    I have posted xenia in the past but it really is 50/50 whether it will make it. I feel that those odds to me really are not worth it. Better to encourage people to frag it and pass it around locally rather than bin it as many do.
    My original xenia came from Alastair over a year ago and I would imagine I have passed it on to about 20 people in the area.

    Re: What corals are worth fragging

    OK I made and put up my frag shelf today. And I also did some frags. They are:

    4 x Red Sea Xenia
    2 x Pulsing Xenia
    1 x Metalic Green StarPolyp
    1 x small Finger Leather
    2 x Gorgonian

    Will have them up for sale/trade in a week or so when they are settled in and I have postage stuff.

    On a side note, I had some probs fragging some star polyps. I cut the matt base no probs but found it very hard to tease it from the LR. I know u can cut a slab of LR with the matt but my stanly blade couldn't manage that. Any advise would be great. Cheers

    Re: What corals are worth fragging

    Found this info:
    With a very sharp small pointed chisel or wedge and a hammer.Score the area (make a line dug into the rock) with the chisel you want to cut.Place the chisel point on the edge of live rock and smack the chisel head sharply with the hammer. You should get a crack or chip,(if not hit the chisel harder with the hammer)move the chisel farther up the line you made earlier.Smack the chisel again with the hammer,move the chisel and smack it again,following the edge of the line on the rock you want to cut.***repeat until the rock is cut the way you want****

    EDIT****note***** 1 whack with the hammer is good,don't try to drive the chisel into the live rock,you only want to crack or chip it a little at a time,after you go around the line you made 1 time and it hasn't come apart,start over and retrace the same line with the hammer and chisel. Digging the chisel or wedge into the rock could make it shatter,If that's the goal,then everything is fine,if you want to shape the rock a certain way,strike and move the chisel,strike and move again

    Oh yea, got up this morning and checked on the frags I did last night, and every single frag (all types) have their polyps out and are looking very happy.

    Im amazed it took only like 10hrs for them ALL to totally recover.
