    Well, I have quickly realized that Kenya Tree Coral multiplies out of control. What do you do with all of this excess coral? I hate to just flush it but I am starting to run out of options.

    Give them to other reefers that you DO NOT like:lol:

    If your LFS will take them,that would be an option.They may or may not give any store credit for them.
    I'm waiting on them to grow up through the front yard where I've flushed so many.

    My LFS won't take them. I can't give them away for free. They end up going down my garbage disposal.

    I will give them away for free. I think Bethleham is a ways away. I would be willing to try to ship them to you...even just priority would probably make it in a day or 2.

    haha, most likely. It was bad enough when my main original frag started sending its spawns all over, now the spawns are reproducing also...

    lol. interesting.

    How do they propagate? By spreading to adjacent area or via seeds to other area? Since my tank is kinda empty, I don't want having one as well.

    The branches form feet and fall off. They then float around the tank and attach to something. You can also place them wherever you want.
