I see this often, "Newly cut frag, will need to heal for two+ weeks".
How do you "Heal" a frag?
Don't, after acclamation, just place it into your tank and then let the lights run through an acclamation period?

Thanks for any new information,

When a new frag is cut it will have jagged edges at the base where it was cut. Over time those jagged edges will “heal” and smooth out, ultimately encrusting. Super dialed tanks can heal a frag in a week, but others can take 2+ weeks. The best IMO is an “encrusted” frag.
