    i was wanting my brain fragged i still haven't tried to do it, was wondering if anyone has done it and would be able to do it at the swap or not?  i will bring the bucket and water for it.  i also have a buddy that needs a bubble cut and some GSP on a rock cut down.  he would even be willing to possibly trade some of the gsp too.  just let me know, i'll be running the main table from 12-12:30 but should be there around 11

    I don't know about the brain or bubble but the green star poylps are easy to frag just pull a pice off the rock they come right off no need to dremil the rock.

    they could be, i read some where that you just use wetsaw for tile cutting to cut it in half, let it soak in a bucket cause the slime can kill other coral, then put back in tank. i have also heard of using just a chopsaw with a fine tooth blade

    I wouldn't use a chop saw unless you don't like your fingers. You can cut most brains down the center with a dremel rather easily, the hard part is not stressing the coral out. Long story short, you have a good chance of killing the brain if you drag it to the swap...cut it....then drag it home. You'll have a much better rate of survival if you just fragged it at home. But i wouldn't cut it with anything other than a dremel or a tile saw, if you dont cut down the center you'll most likely kill the coral. And bubbles don't frag well unless there's a definitive break in the tissue, if there isn't there's a good chance you'll kill it if you frag it.
