Are you new to frag branching corals? We are sure you must have spoken to multiple hobbyists, done hours of research, and cross-checked multiple resources to determine how to get started. And after reading different information from different sources, you must be wondering which frag branching method is effective, right?
Well, it is time to keep your confusion at bay and dive into this relevant source of information. Here we take you through the most effective SPS coral frag branching process.
But first, keep these tools handy
- Latex gloves
- Rubble rock or frag disc
- Bone cutters
- Superglue gel
Now, let's begin!
First, put on your gloves to protect your SPS corals in Canada and yourself. Now, take a bowl full of tank water and then place the mother colony into the bowl for safekeeping. Then examine the colony to determine which branches you wish to take the frags from.
Once you decide the same, go ahead and cut the branch at the base of the colony using the cutter. It is fine to remove the mother colony from the water while performing the cut. Just ensure it isn't completely dry. Now, you can place the mother colony back into the tank and the fragged pieces in the bowl.
Now, you will want to attach your SPS coral frag onto a rubble rock or disc. Go for superglue gel because it won't contaminate the water.
Use a liberal amount of super glue gel to mount the frag on the rubble rock or disc and give it a few minutes to harden. You can even speed up the hardening process by dipping it in the water tank. Ensure to cover the entire frag with glue. Also, if you notice some slime on the frag, don't panic. It is just a stress-related slime that should go away naturally.
Similarly, you will notice white stubs on the newly cut area of the mother colony. Again, don't panic because you will soon notice the overgrowth and find it difficult to distinguish it as the place where the frag was taken from in a few months.
Lastly, once the glue dries off completely, go ahead and put your new SPS coral frag into the tank to help it with the healing process. If possible, give it a heavy flow for the next couple of days to get rid of the stress caused by slime during the fragging process.
Maximum in a month or two, the frag should start encrusting.
Now that you know the most effective way of frag branching SPS coral, we are sure you must be interested in experimenting with the same first-hand. In that case, Frag Garage is the place to explore high-quality, healthy SPS Corals in Canada.
