If you did the incision right up to the mouth, then when it heals, it would have 2 mouths already :D

Do keep us updated on the progress ya? :)

Hey guys kinda new to shrooms propagation. Any advice on how to remove them nicely from rocks or glass? I just ripped 2 of them up from glass put it on rocks. There are some tears. Don't know if they'll survive but so far haven't die yet. Would appreciate help from u guys.

dun think there are any other methods. Just gently pluck them up in a couple of flips... pull a bit left, pull a bit right, it'll come off after a while. avoid ripping it up in a one-shot motion lah~

Just another question : Can I frag Yumas / F.Rics using the methods here? Anyone tried and succeeded?

Okay Dude/Sis;

The method is to use a blunt chisel like object ans slowly pry it loose. Do not use sharp object as it will hurt the foot of the shroom, especially for yuma. It will definitely come off.

After that it will be good to frag. As for yuma or Ric, propagating is the same. But surviviabilty low for new yuma. Frag yuma for more than 1 month in the tank.

Thanks alot fiona and nakazoru,

Unfortunately my 2 frags of shrooms have melted away.Luckily it is frags from a friend who needs to periodically harvest his shrooms so that there will not be a war in his tank or else i would have felt real bad. So i'm currently looking for frags to put in my tank first. Didn't know need to acclimatise it for one month. Haha

Thanks guys really appreciate it.

Cheers

Wee
