    I am looking at fragging a couple of things in my tank and I don't know where to start. I want to frag a head of of a torch and a australian duncan. How do I do this?

    Dremel and a diamond wheel works. You can cut through completely or just score and snap if the skeleton is too thick.

    So you have softies to frag too, or just those LPS?

    I have a duncan and a torch that I want to frag. Do I cut through the tissue at the bottom. On the torch it seems like there is ony stiiue to cut through?

    Cut all the way through between the heads.

    When you take the corals out of the water, gently swish them around and the polyps will retract.

    You can get an idea of what the skeleton structure looks like.

    If you want help fragging, you can bring them to the April meeting.
