Hey everyone,

I put together this video when I was removing colonies from my rock work. Just wanted to share it in case it was helpful for others when looking to reaquascape.

Ty is lording in this video. "Look at me, my corals grow into colonies so quickly that I have to throw them away!"

Haha but in all seriousness, I appreciate the video. I have a flat head screw driver that I have sharpened into a prison shank that taps through rock pretty well. Even better, an actual masonry chisel. They make quick work of your rock, let alone a coral, and you can pick them up for pretty cheap at the hardware store. I had one but I think it ended up at wingnuts house.

So the real question is....whatcha doing with those colonies? :D

I literally threw them to the side in the video as I chiseled so I guess you're not too far off.

Those were the frags I brought to Houston for the meeting! Sorry, the video didn't get finaled until now.

Cody...prison shanks? Really...

This is unfair for the colonies. They stand no chance. You sir...have taken this too far.

And they won't ever talk about it again.
