Zoo, thanks for the info.The way I go about fragging them is called the bowl method.The problem with ricordia is when you cut them they produce a lot of slime which makes them almost impossible to attach using the usual methods such as superglue.Take a glass bowl and sprinkle some crushed coral on the bottom.Now cut up the coral and spread the frags out in the bowl.After 2 to 3 weeks the frags would have attached themselves to the substrate.These pieces can then be glued onto nice pieces of rock.Works for me.
Like most things in life ,bigger is better.Small pieces will work but take a long time to develop into something worthwhile.I have even seen thread on Reef Central where the guys where chopping them up in a blender.Zoo, thanks for the info.
When cutting do you cut like a pizza ? And in into how many pieces would you suggest ?
What part of the coral is attached to the rock ? Just the mouth area ?Warr: when fragging (cutting) use a sharp blade. Try include a piece of the mouth in every frag (this will allow them to recover much quicker. However saying that I have made a few accidental frags before and even tiny pieces of mantle recovered to form full corals
