    Leather coral frag

    Hello all,


    I have this little coral in my tank, that attached itself to the very little peace of rock. it's the one above read algea



    It came from my LFS 3 moths ago, and it's doing very well. That is the mother coral






    I would like to swop it for the green or blue mushroom ar some zoanthid frags? but I would prefer local swop ... not sure about sending the corals - sorry

    the other thing that I bought and am not using is a 500 g. bucket of red sea calk. if there is anyone local that would use it... would be great as I do not want to frow it away....

    Its the same - You just need to take a piece of the algae with a knife or pair of scissors - just a few branches would be great.

    I can bring round some coral frags later next week and I can collect some cuttings then if you like

    If the algae has a holdfast then it's more successful to cut vertically through a section of this and scrape up a bit of the rock surface it's attached to. This can be tricky though. But it's very difficult to get a bit of algae to form another holdfast.


    Holdfast - a root-like attachment structure found in some algae.. it is not a root.. it holds the algae fast to a solid surface.<^EDIT^>
