    In this thread I hope to get sum feedback on different techniques on the process of fragging. SPS seems pretty simple... Or isn't it? Certain LPS specimens? Guess you pretty much gotta wait on polyps? What about small mushrooms? I've heard of people slicing them at their base n attaching...

    I'm starting a coral farm with a 135g, 65g, 55g, a 40g long, two 40gs, and a bunch of 20gs and smaller. I'm thinking of doing a couple of tanks together with sumps and remote deep sand beds, but i dont know what to do with the 135g. Should i do a sump and remote sand bed or just put a sand bed...
