    it should be there, perhaps it was not loaded properly? or perhaps the pic was too big?

    thank u

    Great! I can begin to identify (the few I have) and then find out what to feed them etc :) That one looks great so far but I am sure I should be putting something in the water in the way of food. Can u frag this coral?

    YUP snip and superglue. However fragging should best left until you can at least sustain a tank, never mind the parent colany successfully. That means +- a year. A downer i know.

    Fragging looks easy, and is, however, lots of reefers have tried, few can give up their day jobs. But hay if it contributes to your reefing hobby, that's what it is all about.

    THANKS. It was an established tank when I acquired it and had been going for a few years. So that coral is at least a year old. Normal superglue? What brand?
    I just want more corals in my tank coz have a lot of rock that needs covering. ta Barbs.

    Barbs the name of the game is slowly slowly. I will help you with your fragging endeavor but you must first show me and other reefers that you can keep and look after what has been entrusted in you. You will appreciate what i am telling you as you learn more about reef keeping. The first step is to ensure that the "MORE CORALS" are the correct ones for the environment and that the water parameters are pristine for them.
    This is a long tedious journey, like raising a newborn, But very rewarding.

    Now before you spend another dime on any live stock test all your water parameters and put in place a budget for water quality control. Ask as many questions as you require no matter how silly you might think, Don't be afraid, you will get valued advice here.

    Leave the superglue in the tube for now and learn the basics first. PLEASE
