    There's no better way to frag green star polyps than by force!

    For this I simply knock small sections off of the rock holding the GSP using a hammer and chisel.

    This technique may also be used with other soft, matting corals such as zoanthids, palythoas, xenia, anthelia and more.

    Wouldn't you have to worry about the zoas spraying toxin if they get pinched.

    Yes... Thats why you should always wear protective equipment when dealing with zoas and plays

    Definitely a wise idea.
