View Full Version : Cutting by the base

05/09/2016, 05:14 PM
Hello fellow reefers! I've got a question for you all. I've got a medium sized toadstool coral, maybe 5 inches in diameter and 4-6 inches tall, and it is currently attached to my LR. The LR it is on is in my temporary tank and is being torn down due to the fact that I'm putting all my fish and corals in my new 30 gallon aquarium. Now, I would like to keep my toadstool BUT do not want the LR it is on in my new 30 gallon. My question is, how would I go about doing this? Should I grab my propagation tools and slice him my the base of the coral where it is attached? Or should I just cut the top off amd let it regrow in my new tank orrrr??? I'm at a loss here and could really use some assistance, any advice is great, thanks in advance!!! :spin1:

Is there any chance you can chip it off the rock it's on?

You can use bonecutters and cut into the rock under the toadstool. Leathers are pretty hardy so you can also use a scalpel or knife and cut it off. It will be ****ed, but it will grow back a foot.
