Ive had this coral over a year now and i think its starting to get a little too big for my liking. Just looking for some advice on fragging it... Can i cut it in half? Or quarters? Or should i only cut off a couple of the "fingers" on it?

Pictures? Or what type of coral is it? Fingers? Trumpet coral? Or type of euphillia? Yeah just cut it off with a good clipper or dremmel

It looks fine as is to me.. I like large show piece softies vs smaller pieces spread out..
So what you cut off is up to you..

Looks like a leather coral.

This article (http://www.reefaquarium.com/2013/frag-leather-corals/) serves as a pretty good guideline for fragging them.

You can do it in tank as well, just a little harder to work if space in your tank is limited. Size of pieces you remove at once are up to you. It recommends using rubber bands and allowing the leather frags to attach naturally to frag plugs due to how slimy they are, but I have seen some that were successfully glued.
