    Vampire Acan I want to frag. there are 4 good size babies underneath the main head. I was thinking I could use a razor and cut the babies off? What is the best way to frag these?????

    they have a hard calcified skeleton which means you need tile saw or demel with diamond wheel or diamond bandsaw.

    Best way to frag is to wait another six months until the smaller heads are mature and hit them with a dremel. Right now it looks like blood from a turnip, keep feeding them!!!

    Should I cut the legs off the plug and mount it on a rock of some sort, so they can grow onto the rock?

    It looks real happy, I'd keep feeding it until the skeleton start puddling down on the little flange, then frag it.
