It has been done but imho it is a big risk to frag an elegance. They are an iffy coral left alone. I would be afraid it would die.

No kidding, don't frag it the risk is huge on killing the whole thing. Sell it whole. I have someone in mind if you want to sell it

I would agree that fragging it would be a huge risk. How long have you had it for?

we've fragged our elegance quite a few times and haven't lost one yet. We use the diamond wheel on the dremel to cut up through the skeleton. Right before we hit the flesh we use titanium clippers to make one clean cut through the flesh. It's important to do it quick and clean. Make sure that there isn't any heat building up when using the dremel.
