Sad day for my reef

So while doing a little tlc I accidentally broke my favorite piece. I was scraping the front glass and I punched my nuclear green trumpet and smashed it into 3 pieces

This is what it looked like before I Kung fu panda'd it

I didn't realize how big it got until I put the broken pieces in the bucket

It's temporarily sitting in the corner until I stop crying and figure out what I'm gonna do with it. And by that I mean how to put it back together not fragging it it's my favorite piece.

Totally feel your pain! I have done the same thing to my coral countless time. I always try to glue it back with 90% success but not always gonna get the same look.

Well epoxing was harder than I thought. Especially since it was being set in front Of the rock and not just simply resting on top so weight was an issue lol. I tried my best here's hoping it sticks
