Looking for tips: how to trim back a Plate Leather


New member
I have a Plate Leather that's getting taking over one side of my tank. Can someone offer pointers on how I can trim/frag this beast. Would it be better to split it in half, down the center? Or trim arround the outside edges? Any help would be appreciated.

You could cut it right down the middle or cit it in four. It should heal up just fine. Its a little scary at first but i have done this a few times and always had success. I recently had some issues with my toadstool leather coral. It had some type of white parasite on it and it almost completely died. I ended up taking it out of the tank and cutting into it to see if I could salvage any of it. I ended up with an 1"x1" square from the core and it is developing a new head with polyps now.

you can cut also arround the edge to make the hat smaller (as you like) and cut the edge into pieces to make new ones....
