Propagation techniques and results

  1. Trimming monti caps

    Anyone have any tricks to trimming/pruning monti caps that won't look like the bow of a ship smashed through my reef? I've got a lot of purple rim green cap that is out of control and either shading or engulfing some acros that I'd rather not lose. I've already pretty much lost what I would describe as an encrusting/branching rainbow monti.
  2. pink bird nest rtn

    So I came home after work yesterday to find my perfectly fine bird nest in rtn mode. It's the size of a soccer ball. Today it looks like the progression has slowed or stopped but its probably 50% affected. My fear is that the other corals will get some kind of death signal and follow suit. I'm prepared to break it apart and frag it but that's going to be a lot of frags. So here's a dumb question. Could I glue the frags together to make a new colony of sorts? And should I be looking for some kind ...
  3. I need a new frag tank

    I've been talking about building myself a new frag tank system for about nine months or more. I'm just about to commence that project in the coming weeks. The corals that are in the tank right now are demanding more space, and it's pretty awesome to see. The tank has become dominated by a few species, and they are literally growing up the walls and out of the tank. It's becoming a "frag tank" in the singular sense, instead of a tank filled with dozens of frags.

    Here's a bird's eye ...
  4. How does Birdsnest coral spread?

    After a cursory google search, I didn't land on a satisfying answer to how birdsnest shows up in different areas of the tank. It's an easy coral to frag, and can be glued where you like. It can break accidentally and grow where it lands. But how does is show up on the side of some random rock all of a sudden? Are polyps blowing around and landing elsewhere, growing new colonies? If so, that's news to me.

    I spotted this little guy in April. Granted, it's low enough that there is ...
