Great news.  Heard about taking single zoa polyps, or taking central sections out as frags, as they grow back faster, and spread from all edges.

Speaking of which I’m going to try my hand at fragging for the first time with these.....
Alien Zoa.
Rose Xenia.
If they are stable post cut & glue let me know if anyone wants one.

I use to just put a bit of small rock next to zoa and xenia and just let them grow over the rock and then cut where the rocks met.. It does take a little while
