    Need help with fragging! Everytime I try to frag a zoa, I end up killing several polyps in the process!!!

    Try to search for some educational videos about fragging zoas on youtube.
    I'm sure you'll find the answers for what you're looking for.
    You could also open a thread and have all the friends posting their tips here...
    Many times clean cuts will define success.
    Choose to frag out 5 polyps or more at a time.
    Place new frags in moderate water flow and under same lights as before.
    Make sure you wear gloves, goggles, close your mouth, and clean up very well after yourself!!
    No kids or pets around! Read about palytoxin!!!
    Good luck!

    There is no "toxic levels" of Vitamin C dosages as far as I know.
    The organisms tend to respond better with lower levels than with excessive dosage all of a sudden...

    Here is a great resource on fragging a whole bunch of corals, zoas included. It is done by a lfs here in Denver called Elite Reef.

    I have started using it only by last week for just polishing the water, as I am not doing water changes i thought of give it a try to remove excess organic compounds and to polish the water. I can also remove it if it disturbs VC. Please advice.

    It might add something to the whole thing, but I've never noticed any drastic/visible changes...
