The two larger frags went to local friends at very reasonable prices. If I should ever lose the mother colony I trust the favor will be returned. Many years ago a friend introduced me to the concept of "warehousing" your corals. Give somebody a good deal and they'll return the favor if need be. And they're also more likely to entrust you with a frag of their special coral knowing the action is reciprocal.

It's a idea I'd like to see become more widespread in the hobby.

Nice demonstration. I recently tried a diamond band saw on acan lords, highly recommend if you can afford the $200, only about twice as much as a tile saw. Was able to cut precisely around individual heads, though with more crude methods even the 1/4 head chips seem to survive. The band saw does make a much nicer looking product and you dont get that uneasy feeling watching a head get torn appart. - Mark
