    My Duncan, which I've had almost since I started 3 years ago is getting to the stage of having to frag it up.
    I started with about 4 heads on a single stem and has now grown to an absolute mass of heads. I stopped counting at about 80.
    This (crappy) pic shows roughly the number of heads when it retracted the other day.

    It's all growing off 1 skinny stem and looks like a tree.
    I don't want to wreck it but I think it needs fragging to let it expand.

    Apparently they frag really easily.
    I read an article where they say that when you frag them and have some stem left over, don't throw it away the stem will sprout new heads.
    They even cut a stem in half lengthways and new heads popped up along the two halves!!

    I might break up a piece of rock into smallish pieces to glue the frags onto, I hate the look of frag plugs.

    I'll buy a frag from you :)
    I had a big colony a while back which unfortunately died off.
    They are super easy to frag.

    I love Duncans, especially when it's target feeding time, and they seem to always thrive

    We don't let ours get past about 10 heads because it's a pain in the ass to frag those huge colonies.
