Does candy cane need to be fragged?

    I'm wondering if my candy cane coral would benefit from being fragged? At this point it is grown out into a pretty full 'half sphere' and the heads are all pretty close together. Or will it stay happy the way it is?

    I have a frogspawn that I've been wondering the same thing about. Following along.

    You don't have to frag it. I have one way bigger than a football. It will continue to grow upward and the heads on the bottom will die off. If you do frag it, frag it from the bottom.

    The colony will continue to grow and expand pretty much like a balloon. With that being said, I've always found it helpful to frag a few off the bottom. In my experience, the bottoms ones have always grown into the sand or rockwork and ended up dying off.

    I had one in my 180 that was almost the size of a basketball.
