    I simply trim the sides off mine, then tie the frags to rocks using string. Within a few weeks they attach and the parent colony heals back to it's old self.
    Carbon is a good idea for toxins. Try to frag outside the tank if possible and leave the parent colony and frags in water outside the tank for a while before returning them.
    Have fun!

    Thanks zander !! Feel so guilty having to cut. Just thinking it could be painful for them. But thats why I'm not a surgeon and not making big buks.
