Step 1: Remove coral from your aquarium. Gently shake the coral so the polyps will retract before you remove it from the water.

第一步:将你的珊瑚从缸里面拿出来,摇一下珊瑚,让珊瑚收缩

[eng]
Step 2: Decide where your cut is going to be made. Anywhere 1/4" or more before the flesh is fine. Make sure you select a spot where you can cut most of the way through without damaging neighboring polyps with the dremel.

第二步:观察一下,哪里做切割,在离分支脑肉体的1/4英寸左右是一个合适的地方,在做切割之前,保证分支脑的共肉并没有相互连在一块,否则在最后切开时,共肉会受损

[eng]
Step 3: Make your cut 90% of the way through the skeleton. Then take a flat edged too and use it to pry off the polyp. I recommend doing this instead of cutting all the way through to prevent accidental dropping of the polyp or cutting a neighboring polyp with the dremel. If there are any rough or jagged edges, simply file them down with the blade.

第三步:用电介刀切到90%左右就可以了,再用工具将它撬开,这样做的好处是,不会因为切开时,分支从高处坠下而受损,如果割下的分支有太多锯痕,凹凸不平,就用锉刀磨平,后面好粘上基座

[eng]
Step 4: Mount the cutting. Dry off the cutting and the mount it is going to be attatched to before glueing. This allows the glue to set stronger. If using frag plugs make sure its wide enough to prevent tipping of the top heavy or lopsided frag. This species of coral will not encrust over the rock so dont go too skimpy on the glue. Alow at least one minute to dry before submerging.

第四步:粘分支,在粘之前先将分支脑的粘合面用吸水布弄干,这样粘的话会牢固一点,如果是粘在珊瑚基座上,小心头重脚轻哟,因为分支脑不像SPS,底部并不会生长,形成基质与基石粘在一起,所以要加大粘合剂的量,并在连接处外沿也粘上胶水,粘好后,至少等一分钟才进缸

[eng]
Step 5: Rinse the coral off and return it to the aquarium or frag tank. Its best to put it back in a spot with similar lighting and flow as where it origionally came from.

第五步用鱼缸的水冲洗一下,然后就可以进缸了,最好放在原来的地方,或者相近光源的地方
