Methodology:

For propagating mushrooms I use two different primary techniques one in the water and one out.

In order to get them to split more rapidly, I use a clean razor blade to cut them, while in the home system, starting at the center of the mouth and working out towards the edge. This will generally cause them to either split or shoot out a baby mushroom at the cut spot.

Dividing colonies is done with a hammer a chisel used to break small pieces of the colony rock off under the mushroom. This eliminates the need for low flow settlement areas or labor intensive attaching procedures.

After mushrooms are separated from the mother colony, I use a small dab of reef blue to attach their base rocks onto small rubble rock for resale.

If theres a specific species you would like to see fragged, leave a comment below.

Yep they're all essentially the same thing just a bunch of different growth forms and colors.
