    Question Question on cutting corals?

    I've got this coral.... It's a finger leather. I would like to try to cut a piece and I'm not sure how to do it. Is there a trick... what should I use.... How will it affect tha coral? I've never done this and I don't want to harm my coral so any advice would be appreciated!!

    Thanx

    Why is it called "cargo" when it goes by ship, and "shipment" when it goes by car?

    Have you checked out garf.org? They have a large section of there web jost for propagation of corals. It seems pretty stright foward, but I have not tried it yet.

    Simply use either sharp clean scissors or a razor. As long as you do a nice clean cut, there is no problem. Keep it in an area where ther is decent flow so that no algae or other gunk can collect and grow on the open area. Leathers are very resilient and often the rest of it that is not immediately next to the cut will reopen right away.

    Thanks Toutouche! Once I cut it what's the best thing to do with the frag? I've read that some peopl use crazy glue to stick them to a rock but I find that a little scary!!! What other way could I use to get it to attache to a base?
