    Hey All,

    I need some help here.
    So i have a pin coushion that is logged into my liverock. So basically that guy is stuck there.

    so my question is, can i cut the pin coushion through its base?
    Its getting too big for where it is.

    Yes you can. What is left on the rock will also grow. If you have to cut it in the tank make sure you run some carbon and skim a little wetter.

    You can also cut around the outside of the pin cushion and get a couple of frags out of that. Sometimes less traumatic than cutting the entire base.

    Hi Nick ,

    I also had to cut the base of my Pin to get it to mount on the rock I wanted , sulked for a week .
    Grew very quikly and also got to big for the tank and had to cut the outer edge off. Got a few fraggs sitting in the tank now.
