Mmmmm……(not sure what fragging is 😳)😂
It’s where you (usually) cut a coral and then glue it to another frag plug.

For example, this is a mother colony of a Tenius Walt Disney:

And this is a frag of said colony:

As you can see, someone just essentially cut off a piece of it, and glued it to another frag plug.

A mother colony is a big growth that they cut frags off of.

This isn’t only with sticks however, you can frag pretty much any coral.

So once my hammer grows at least 6 heads, I might consider snipping one or two off and selling them. That’s fragging.

It’s much harder than it sounds, because your frag tank has to be extremely clean and established, so the cuttings can recover once they are cut.

That’s a good bit of learning for today - thank you 🙂

Why don't you just format/ reset the laptop?
that will get rid of the virus and clean things up, then do an update and your good to go.

A slow pc can also be4 caused by a full hard drive and dust on the heat sinks.
i tried that, like, 3 times, It's not going away :mad:
Did you do a full format/ reset and remove everything or only a basic reset?
Windows 10 has both and a full reset should get rid of viruses but a basic reset where you keep files will allow viruses to remain.

fragging in coral terms is where you break a coral into fragments and grow new corals from those fragments. Frag being short for fragment.

How much have you spent on one tank then?
double
only because my parent's house doesn't have the space for anything more significant.
i'm practically at a standstill when it comes to more aquariums, but give me a few more years and i'll start my first truly "large" tank journal (if this forum will still exist).

(if anyone still cares about the 155 journal, i put it on pause because i'm building a 75)
