So my rbta split... but it wasn’t a clean split... it split by trying to go through a tiny hole in the sump of my AIO tank. it split into four parts and some look like they are going to melt cause the insides are coming out... i was wondering if i’d be able to save it be clean cutting the ends with a razor. Any ideas?

I’ve seen that happen to a friend via powerhead. He placed the chunks in a container with crushed coral gravel & quarter size rocks under medium to low flow, medium lighting & dosed salifert natural iodine. I remember it produced 3 chunks, 1 died & 2 survived but he didn’t cut into them in order to avoid stressing it more. He set them in a 5” container with rock so the chunks could anchor to something & not tumble around and end up back on a powerhead. Hopefully that helps out. Good luck.

Thanks! I pretty much did the same thing. Had to remove some pieces that looked like it was melting.
