    Ahoy!

    So tomorrow myself and gawiedj will be slicing and dicing again.:thumbup: This time we'll be fragging some ric's, a couple of mushrooms and loads of Zoa's. Gawiedj's corals have grown so much that it's time to propagate and make some space. The frags will be mounted on LR rubble and some plugs.
    I think Keyaam will also be there. I'll make sure we take loads of pictures and upload asap.;)

    Ok, so all went well. Gawiedj did all the work today and the rest of us stood watching, taking pics and talking. All the pics are on gawiedj's camera so we'll have to wait for him to upload. I must say, gawiedj was in the zone today and fragged half his tank!!

    Pics are uploading.

    Not many pics this time, the cam is not in great shape. Apparently the person looking after our house, dog and fishtank on saturday/sunday DROPPED THE CAMERA BAG accidentally :nono::angry::arghh:

    So ja; so far the onboard flash does not work anymore, the springloaded cover over the memory cards is cracked and will not last much longer and the pics just look a bit off...

    To all the new reefers this is how you do it, and do TONS of research before you frag. Nice job looks very professional.

    I tried the "needle and thread" method to attach the frags this time. I am afraid it did not work for me, so I went back to my most sucessfull method so far. I use plastic tubs with crushed coral, put the frags in and after about a week they attach to some of the crushed coral pieces.

    Rics and a green devilshand leather frag
    The orange, rainbow and purple/green rics are all frags
    The brown and green rics middle bottom and top left I removed from a rock. The bleached one had a bit of a disagreement with a shroom a while ago, it is colouring up and looking better by the day
