    Since I use epoxy and superglue to mount my frags, when they grow out, how do I frag them? I dont want to remove them from the attached rocks. Are there mini waterproof pliers/clippers? I have never fragged before so I'm just curious for when the time comes. Thanks.

    I'd recomend the bone shears and then rinse w/ fresh water and dry after each use.-Jim

    I haven't seen any local. But best place you can order is at marinedepot, but make sure you want other stuff to because if you are going to get one item, the shipping is a killer.

    You can also use wire cutters, if you can't find bone shears. Just make sure you clean them well first, as they sometimes have some lubricating oil on them.

    And, like bookfish said, rinse them well and DRY them, or they'll rust on you!
