Make sure to use a sharp pair of tissue scissors or bone cutters to sever the bud from the parent corals in one clean cut. It is crucial to incorporate a single motion rather than multiple snipping motions to ensure a clean cut for faster healing. Be sure to make the cut at the base of the coral bud where it attaches to the parent coral. If the distinction between parent and bud is not clear and you do not feel comfortable, wait until the bud matures and the distinction is clear.
Healthy coral frag maintenance
Provide and maintain ideal water conditions to ensure healthy growth. In due time, the new coral will mature and fill out nicely. As long as the corals are provided for, this process can be repeated indefinitely - resulting in a well-stocked reef aquarium from just a few parent corals.
With increasing news regarding the declining health of the world's coral reefs, many reef hobbyists have realized the need for an alternative to wild species. Aquacultured corals make a great alternative to wild harvested corals.
