First, frag a coral colony. Coral cutters
are great for fragging SPS corals, but a coral scalpel
is better for fragging zoas and other soft corals. Professionals might consider a coral frag saw
. Next, attach the new coral frags to frag tiles
. Coral glue
is best for hard corals. Some other stony corals attach well with aquarium epoxy
. Some soft corals attach well to frag disks with some wound string.
Then, place the new frag on a frag holder
like a coral frag rack
in the aquarium (or dedicated frag tank). A magnetic frag rack
can be used to mount corals on the side of the tank. Some mounting options, like a frag rock
, blend into the aquarium live rock.
