    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.
