Removing elastic band from colt coral


Recommended Posts

I received a frag from a fellow reefer and it had not encrusted on a rock yet. I secured the colt to the rock with an elastic band 8 days ago. Tonight I tried to remove the elastic band. But, the elastic band had grown into the colt. I noticed this too late. As I tried to cut and remove the elastic band I ripped off the colt from the rock. So I reattached the colt back to the rock with the elastic band grown into it.

My question is..... Should I leave the elastic band on permanently? How do I remove the elastic band without harming the colt? The colt has obviously shrunk now as I have really stressed it out.
