This fast growing soft coral is very easy to propagate. The Capnella is cut into small pieces and and spread out on the bottom of the tank. It often takes only two days for the corals to attach to the shells. We then glue the shells with the corals attached to reef plugs.

We use plastic tanks that are only four inches deep that have a layer of small sea shells on the bottom.
Our cutting tanks are four feet long and they are divided into three sections. We use 40 watt lights above these tanks. We use Aquarium Systems Mini-Jet power heads and one air release in each chamber. We now use these chambers to propagate other fragile soft corals.
