The propagation and aquaculture of corals is extremely important to the reef aquarium hobby and frag swaps such as this helps hobbyists receive and reproduce corals at a very fair cost. Not only does this help to preserve and limit what is harvested from natural reefs, but it also helps to create a more consumer friendly market. Propagating and aquaculturing corals is not only easy, but fun. Using a dremel tool, clipping shears, razor blade or a snap with your hands,fragging corals is a simple process. With the use of super glue, fishing line or bridal veil material, attaching a fragment of a coral to a piece of live rock rubble or mounting disk is a cinch. I currently have a few customers that have corals growing so rapidly that I need to cut them up a number of times a year. I pass on these frags to other clients or hobbyists at no charge.
I encourage all hobbyists to attend at least one frag swap a year to help prolong the life of our natural resources and to learn from more experienced collectors.
