i have read something by eric borneman ( a highly respected member on saltwater aquaria ) on fragging elegance coral with a wet saw, he also mentions using this method for plerogyra and scolymia.

i have not and most likely will not try this ( atleast anytime soon ) but if he claims its do-able, i believe it.

That's just crazy looking. It doesn't even look real, even though I know it is. Do you know it's scientific name? I know its common name is "Grinch Christmas Ornament".

i transfered everything from the bowfront into the new tank, went to bed and woke up to a cloudy milky tank. i can only guess it was a bad chemical warfare case. one thing released something ( which im willing to bet was the green palys ) and the next thing said "your not going to get me" lol, and on the battle went.

Wow, that really stinks. Thankfully i've never had that issue before and i've transfered corals and fish into different tanks many a times (because of moving and not by choice). Glad you are bouncing back up.
