    My first coral

    Just brought my first coral home today. I purchased a real nice rock with about 20 green mushrooms on it.

    If these do well. I plan on trying to frag them. what are your thoughts about that guys? I will need to set up a small tank. what are the basic req. for fraging???

    Hi. The easiest way for me is to place a small piece of rock next to the main colony and the mushrooms tend to spread out to the new rock.

    Chris2586 is correct and this method will work. It is safe, but the downside is that it is very slow.

    Check out this thread for other methods.

    Also putting them in a blender and pulsing for 2 secs works well too...

    These things are remarkably easy to frag, for best results, slice em like a pizza pie and put 'em in a dish with rubble in the bottom. Put bridal veil over the top and in a week or so they will attach to the rubble. Voila! New shrroms.
