    Yucca tumbled off his perch and busted. Is there anything I can do about this? The big arched part on the top busted off. Will this kill Yucca? Can I glue it back on? Can I make another Yucca out of the piece that fell? GRRRRRRRRRRRR

    It will grow into it's own separate coral now. Accidental fraggings seem to be the most common kind :)

    Nice! Making new frags and watching how they grow into their own shape is cool, take some pics every couple weeks of it and do a time lapse compilation. Someone on RC did that of some SPS frags and it was very cool. I don't know how they did it though :(
