What is a frag?

By John McQueen

Frag is just a shorter version of the word fragment. In this case a frag is a piece or “fragment” of a coral that’s been moved to a smaller location. Most coral can be “fragged” but that does come with exceptions.

Frags grow into larger, more robust coral over a period of time and this is what makes them a cheaper and easy option for beginners as well as seasoned hobbyists.

Being able to track the progress of a frag overtime can be exciting and also shows the level of care that your tank is receiving. If you’re ever concerned that you might not be caring for your tank directly, we are available to help or you can consider a maintenance contract with us (you can find more under our services).

Feel free to stop by the shop to experience our frag tables and find a unique frag for your aquarium!
