trouble fraging rhodactis
i have been fraging dicosomas or mushroom anemones by cuttings succesfuly but every time i cut a piece from my rhodactis or atinodiscus they melt away ...i use the method of cutting a piece as close to the mouth as possible..i put the cutting into a clear plastic cup i a indirect flow with a little bit subdued lighting and some rubble to atach to ...i have failed 5 seperate occasions and am getting frustrated...my recordia and discosomas frag and attach just fine...throw me a bone here...ADIOS...
heres a bone.. go fetch =) kidding =p good luck in finding what you seek ..
this is frustrating but thanks anyways....ADIOS....
how far away from the light are you putting the fresh cuts? what are your water params?
i put them at the bottom of the same tank in wich they are fraged in..my perameters are fine ....ph 8.2,amonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 0-50,phosphates0-25,calcium 390-420,salinity023, and kh are good....i could subdue the lighting ..........PS i dont know if it matters but i have only tried to cut pieces off the fuzzy mushrooms that i have wich are bland as in brown ....i dont want to try the green or purple until i masterthe not so pretty ones....maybe it is a fluke...i thought that the brownish more durable ones would have fraged easier...what do you think.....ADIOS...
they may not be as healthy ... also are you getting a piece of the mouth or just getting close?? just asking (i have not attempted tofrag yet but i am reading a lot in preparation)
i try to get as close to the mouth as possible sometimes it is not possible...it doesnt seem to matter with the discasomas....but i think you are onto something...the browns may not be as hardy as i thought ...it might make sence that since they contain a lesser amount or type of zoozanthelae that there recovery would be stressed...i am going for a green with this in mind ...wish me luck...ADIOS...
keep us posted i want to learn everything and your experience is a great teacher!!!!
so far so good i will get some pics up soon...ADIOS...
