Casey, is that doesn't look like branching FS... Mine is branshing and I just cut the stalks...

Fragging non-branching FS is a PITA and is risky... It has to be done over time...

You need to drill holes along the base and insert acrylic wedges... Over the of a month or so, use the wedges to split the stalk...

Is there a single mouth for the entire coral?? If so, you need to split the mouth in half... If there are multiple mouths, you'd want to split between them...

HTH and let us know how things turn out...

Better you than me Casey. I get a bit nervous using power tools on corals. Keep us posted on the progress.
