Cool links.
I first learned propagation at www.GARF.org. Lots of articles there, if you can read around the advertising.

i find the most frightening part about coral propagation for first timers is the fact that you feel as if you're actually harming the coral by cutting it.

are there any video clips that might show someone propagating corals? i think it might dispell some misconceptions and irrational fears new reef keepers might have...

Although, Ricordia should be spelled Ricordea.

Soft coral propagation:

http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2006-09/fotm/index.php

More LPS techniques:

Propagation of Anchor and Brain Corals:

http://reefkeeping.com/issues/2007-03/gh/index.php

Propagation of Small-Polyped Stony Corals:

I stopped writing after that becuase I couldn't think of any other techniques!
