It was coral cutting workshop again at the Marine Aquarium Society of Toronto. Since I have lost most of the livestock from my reef tank during the power blackouts I have picked up these cuttings to start restocking my tank.
Leather corals are hardy, I figured one will survive in my tank that is still recovering from the recent die off.
Hammer and torch corals are close relatives of the frogspawn coral, that was doing well in my tank prior to the power out. So I have decided to try these.
I did not really want to pick up anything else, but a bunch of gorgonian cuttings were lying there, so I have picked one up.
I did not mount these frags during the meeting. I prefer to glue them directly to a big piece of live rock where they supposed to sit, so I did that when I got home.
I have used super glue and some underwater epoxy (the kind that you knead together), and for the leather coral cuttings, I just used a rubber band to hold it to a rock.
Only time will tell if any of these will survive, for now they seem to be doing well.
