The OG that we fragged is doing great so I fragged the Gum Drop bounce into 4. Fingers crossed.

Nothing special or high tech. An old 55 gallon plex tank, 300 watt MarsAqua LED, a second hand reef Octopus in tank skimmer, Jaeger 100 watt heater and 2 really cheap powerheads. And an eel that poops a lot and keeps the nutrient levels high.
Cheers! Mark

While the 55 gallon is going to be the "mushroom garden", we also have a 30g AIO that has pretty nutrient rich water. Some of the shrooms are in this tank. Some are healing from fragging and others are just separated in case of a tank crash.

Time to frag a Jaw Breaker:

First cut the disc on the bandsaw so I can snap it under the foot:

Nice, not as clean as I had hoped, but should be ok (I got three frags) one was not attached so I put it in the cup with the Frankenstein

Awesome! Thanks for doing a JB. In theory I'd think these would be the easiest but cant wait to see your results.

I am gonna do them all. Here is the frag of the JB that I am not thrilled with. I guess the JB was originally on a small pebble that was mounted to a disc. When I snapped the disc, it tore the shroom.

This is the other OG that was fragged 9 days ago. There is a nice big one and a very small one. They both look good and I am guessing the bright green on the small one is new flesh from healing??( I will try to get a better pic of the small one)
