Here is my neon green sinulara next to my 8 inch clam.
Kenya Leather with my clown trying to show off. To the right is a nice bush of Xenia.
Nothing special but this is first saltwater tank.
Wow! Great photos!
I think the first pic is my green sinularia and my green toadstool. Second pic is my favorite softy. A crazy neon yellow toadstool.
The toad is brighter than my cryptonite candy cane.
My new Frag I think he's happy lol
If ANYONE has one of these and is willing to frag, I am INTERESTED. Please PM. I love these things and can't find them for sale anywhere.
I second that. I would want to buy a frag also. What's the name of this coral Zack?
Here is a whole thread on it: Pulsing Sinularia (Sinularia Polydactyla)
how did you get them to stay on the frag?
I have tried many methods.
strapped down with cotton thread (takes way too much time) but the good thing with this method is that the frag self bifurcates on the string as it grows.
toothpick through the frag and held down by rubber band (can tear off easily)
toothpick pinching the frag to the frag plug with a rubber band (can get removed off by flow or fish)
All the above have 10-15% detachment rate. The last bunch I did had a 100% attachment rate. For those I put the toothpick UNDER the frag plug and ran the rubber band over the frag.
These are the supplies I use:
toothpicks (I cut the brush end off)
Thanks! A few weeks ago I got a giant toadstool and got 20 nice size frags from it, still leaving the original a good size. I tried the fishing line through the frags tied to the plug, only one has stayed. After letting them float around in my frag tank for a while I then tried gluing them to the plug, but they all came off. I have now rubber banded them all to the plugs, but it just looks like the rubber band is splitting them in half. Very frustrating! The easiest coral to frag, the hardest coral to get on a plug!
Here's my share
I've seen that a year ago. I have that pic. As it's what made me get 1. My lights are just turning on so it'll b a bit
Leave em in a small container of rubble and they'll grab hold quickly. And place it in ur tank that's what I do for leathers
