    Hi @Tokolosh 420. They were propagated from one mother colony.

    Thanks man. Used a band saw lubricated with water from the tank which i sprayed as i fragged. Had to wash the saw afterwards to avoid rust but it left a nice clean cut. Roughly two years, made sure before the first frag that the coral was big and healthy. Also when it closes you can see how to boney part of the coral makes a 'w' and so you cut where the two walls meet...every now and then it releases a daughter colony but i don't do anything fancy to try grow it out coz this coral is taking over the tank..
