A couple of tips to come in the video. I'll post it on here as soon as it's out.Hi Mike your corals are gorgeous - share with us "your best tips and secrets" to maintaining such lovely healthy corals ! Look forward to the vid !
That sounds like it should work fairly well. I used to propogate all of the corals in this tank, so they're all still on disc's which sit on the rock. This makes it easy to this day to remove nearly any of them in one piece if I ever want to, but they're definitely a hard coral to frag off the rock once attached. If you can find any areas where the chalice is lifting away from the rock as it grows you can usually cut these parts off relatively easily. Just be sure to keep all the inner skeleton aligned as it was in the colony when gluing them onto new areas or plugs.You have some lovely chalices. Have you attempted to frag any of them. One of mine attached to the main rock structure is growing a little too large for my liking. And I'm beginning to think of ways to frag it, but don't want to damage it by scraping it off the main rock. Any advice?
I was thinking of maybe applying what I did to encrusting monties, in that I would add a shell or little piece of rock next to the coral and allow the coral to grow over it. Then I could take the shell/rock away and have some of the coral on it and thus essentially made a little encrusted frag. I'm thinking this would work with the chalice as well as long as there is at least one eye polyp on the frag, that this should work. What are your thoughts on this?
