Fragging a Fungia?

Can a fungia plate coral be fragged? If so, how does this get accomplished?

Thanks,

John

It can be but sometimes it just refuses to grow after, you have to frag it so part of the mouth is on each frag like a nem. Usually they will grow back around into a full plate but sometimes they dont. Its iffy usually IMO.

Most of the time they do fine.

Wet saw is the preferred method.

For anyone that has done this, do you suggest just cutting diametrically across the center, or would it be best to cut a triangular, pie-shaped piece - making sure to get a portion of the mouth?

If the plate still has a stump under it you can break the whole plate off the stump and the stump will grow a new plate. I found this out by mistake.
