They all started from one frag. I would guess I have produced probably 500 frags over the years. If you were local to me I'd give you a piece. As it stands I typically bring them to a fish store about once a year for $2 credit a frag..

Actually just down the street from me it's only a couple hundred feet of water to MI, but legally you could come to Canada and bring back soft corals on plugs (not rubble). Capnella not having a skeleton is not on cites.

Thank you for the pictures! Would you say they tend to spread fast?

Yes they do spread pretty quick but assuming you can move them, it's manageable. It's usually obvious for a few days when they are going to drop frags and you can twist them off before they fall off. I never end up with a huge colony, after they get a few inches and the stalk gets to a certain thickness they just never seem to get bigger.

A lot of people will knock kenya tree but I like them. I wish I had more local people to sell or baring sell give to, but there aren't many local reefers here.

Thank you! I've been deciding on some sort of leather for a while but they're all super nice. I feel you with the local reefer thing, I don't know a ton of people around my area that are into corals so it's kind of hard to get good deals
