What is “fragging”?
Fragging is a process of reproducing corals by cutting pieces, known as frags, to grow new specimens. All though coral is an animal, it can be grown from cuttings just like some plants. Many corals are now propagated by fragging for sale in aquarium stores. Additionally, many aquarium hobbyists frag their own corals to trade with others. Fragging is a method of aquaculture. It is an environmentally friendly method of obtaining coral for reef aquariums.
