    Need some advice from anyone who has dealt with over growing palys. Any recommendations for getting them off the rock or general fragging advice? I am aware of the protection needed from the toxins, but how much water should i change out afterwards to help remove it?

    I would like to trim some down and toss em out for DBTC if anyone is interested in them.

    I use bone cutters and try to get in around the edges and cut off some of the rock underneath them. Then toss them, or glue the rock to a frag plug.

    I'd be interested in some of the pink one's. If your close by ill even donate some frag plugs. I would run some carbon for a few days to help with toxins.

    I've been told to use Aiptasia X, to prune them back (not frag them).

    I just started, and will give a report when I see results.

    Please let me know. I've read of people using A-X as well. I'd like to share em before eliminating them.
