    Great work! If you're getting PE that quickly the frags should have no problem taking off.

    Thanks guys. :)

    Pocillopora is one gooey coral when you frag it, turns into a slippery mess.

    Thanks nigthster!

    I am looking for my next fragging victim. Toss up between a Tort, Duncan or Stylopora. I need more egg crate and super glue gel first though.

    Hey Nismo,

    Took a lot longer than normal because I had the wrong glue. The super glue not gel is a lot runnier. Probably 30-40 minutes total. Not including the time it took me to catch the female clown to remove her so I could work in peace without the fear of attack.

    They do harden a lot faster once underwater, so that is a new trick I learned. A lot of slimming though by both corals, but they look really good now so they did well after fragging.

    Oh your funny lol.

    I guess when my tiny 28 gal is filled to the brim with frags. No really I am thinking of getting a rimless shallow/ MH lighting pendent probably around the 40-60 gallons. It's that darn boy friend dealy and chiller that is holding me back..........
