How to frag a chalice w/o coarlites

Recommended Posts

Ok so I took the plunge and fragged my strawberry chalice. I have done extensive reach and the results seem to look good. The only drawback is the frags will be slow growing.

A couple of folks has asked that I post pictures of the procedure so here we go. . .

Ok first thing we need are our supplies:

  • Stainless Steel Scissors (I bought at Sally Beauty Supply $9.99)
  • Dollar Sore Super Glue
  • Frag plugs or rubble

Oh yeah the Chalice (old photo)

I cut the fleshy part of the chalice on the left side inside the tank with the scissors.

(sorry forgot to take a photo, see left side of the chalice)

Then I cut the frag into 3 pieces and glued them to a plug.

Now only time will tell.

Why will the frags be slow growing?

Ric,

It needs to grow a mouth. I will be feeding reefroids everyday as usual. According ot all my research it should grow a mouth in a couple of weeks.

I read somewhere the success rate is much better when you frag them with a mouth. I'm interested to see how this turns out, without a mouth. Please keep us updated.
