Shrooms dissolving into brown slime during shipping...its killing me! (And the shrooms!) Can shrooms be safely cut like soft corals, and apparently zoas? I know of someone who apparently safely and successfully cuts/frags his bounce shroom, but that was the first and only time Ive heard of cutting shrooms. Every time I buy shrooms recently, they're dissolving into brown slime by the time they arrive, or at least are about to--1 of 3 was already dissolving in the bag, but the other 2 looked fine but started dissolving later in the tank, which I'm sure must have been delayed from the shipping. It then occurred to me that if ALL shrooms can safely be cut, that could be a potential remedy, unless it's too late once they cross a line even before visually breaking down, as it seems might have been the case today. *they were dipped(melafix&reef dip) pre-release, and all again later when the others began. I was surprisingly able to totally clean every bit of slime off on the first one before the last dip by holding it almost against the suction slots of a powerhead(although it might have just been due to there seeming to be more of a hard line of degeneration, instead of just entirely fading into brown sludge), so im thinking this is actually similar to having cut part off, although cutting would also remove any residual microscopic remains of bacteria/disease along the edge, so I guess I still won't know why it didn't work if it doesn't.
So the question is in the title. Does WAMAS have one? I don't think so, just the PAR meter. Is there anything else I am missing? What would be the chances of WAMAS buying a nice frag saw: Gryphon C-40 Band Saw $340+/- and renting it out by the day or two days? I think I would be willing to pay $10-$20 for a day or two, more expensive on weekends, cheaper on weekdays, 48 hr limit+/-, or a $30-$50 fine+/-, check or credit card deposit for $500+/- - thing like that. I would not be suprised if that thing would be booked a month in advance making $250- $300 per month. It would cover the cost in 2 months, factoring in blade purchases. Then we buy a second one to keep the back log down if it really takes off. You can keep it at my house when not in use;)
