Step-by-step instructions Be confident and successful fragging corals. What does your ideal coral aquarium look like? Do you want a mixed coral reef tank, buzzing with color and energy as fish and invertebrates fill every level with the colors and textures of a coral reef? It is a devastating feeling to buy a new coral and watch it shrivel away and die in your tank. Wild-collected corals travel long distances in some challenging living conditions before they make it to your home aquarium, and many of those specimens are damaged and dying before you get them home. In this book, I will show you how some successful reef aquarium hobbyists are able to fill their tanks with corals that are already proven to grow well in their tanks. These aquarists are also able to trade with other hobbyists to acquire some of the corals that are grow best for them, and many are even able to use these secrets to make a little money on the side. Ok, they aren’t really secrets, but what I am talking about is fragging corals. Hi, I’m Albert Ulrich, the author of The New Saltwater Aquarium Guide and 107 Tips for the Marine Reef Aquarium. I have been published in Aquarium Fish International and Aquariums USA magazines and I have been blogging online about the hobby for years at This book will show you how to frag corals for your marine aquarium with step-by-step instructions.
