Colt Coral Alcyonium

Alcyonium can be propagated like Siriulaha, by cutting off branches with a scissors. The tricky part is to get the slippery cutting to attach to something. Several ways have been devised to achieve that end, but by far the best one is the use of cyanoacry-late glue. In our experience, severing really large branches is problematic in that they frequently suffer from bacterial infections. Once severed they flop over and secrete mucus, and may be lost in a few days. The treatment with antibiotics should solve that problem, but an alternative is to sever only small branches, approximately one inch (2.54 cm) long. These are easily attached to rocks with cyanoacrylate gel, and if water flow is directed over them they are unlikely to be destroyed by bacteria.
