Looks like a good man tool, nicely broken in.

FWIW, when I frag, I've had corals out of water for 15 to 20 minutes with zero issues.

If you actually read Greg's article he addresses the rust and a reason for it. Everybody is always so quick to judge.

Greg really knows his stuff...

The pegging of corals outlined in the article is a blessing for those that are not familiar. My entire tank is done this way and I love it.

Well at least the rust is a good way to add iron for you macroalgae. Not to mention some sps benefit from it too.
