Coral Propagation Basics
Use a sharp scalpel to make a clean cut and sever the bud from the parent coral. It is crucial to incorporate a single motion 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.
The severed bud can then be attached to a small piece of live rock. Use monofilament or nylon fishing line to gently, yet tightly, secure the coral to the live rock.
Position the coral in an appropriate location with regard to lighting and water movement. 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.
