    Propagating Coral, General Paragraphs And Help With Coherence.

    My opinion on the word "propagate" is to pretty much divide an organism into multiple parts. Example of one type of propagation is to slice a whole coral into pieces, then waiting for the pieces to grow and become separate multiple whole's again over time.
    So say for example you have a (hypothetical) $10 bill that equals a whole coral and you divide it into 10 pieces, it will then become 10 separate, $10 bills. All pieces of coral added together equal a $100 bill or 10 x $10 bills, or 10 whole corals. I look at these organisms as money trees, so to speak, that grow over time in which need pruning every once and a while.
    These organisms range in size equivalent to the tip of your finger or smaller, to the size of a dinner plate. Their price range from $5 to $100 each. Some of the small organisms can be worth $100 each.
    Inside an aquarium such as a 50 gallon tank, you can house a lot of corals. Can you imagine a green house with 5000 gallons? Lets just say its been done in Michigan and other places in the States and the owner in Michigan has gold on each arm from wrist to elbow. He has the deep pockets, I have the 12 year education and experience to achieve and put together a much bigger dream he can only imagine.




    What a coral propagator or aqua culturalist does, is to buy corals, grow them out, then propagate them. From there, they will post ads with the corals pics, price, how to care for (husbandry) and their description on kigigi or salt water forums, were people with salt water tanks, would then email me to stop by my house to buy them. If they do not stop by, I would either meet up with them/group of them or ship the coral through the mail. What I really want to do, is to expand in the future, hopefully within 5 years. This expansion would be a coral aqua culture facility (green house). I also have more plans to culture live food such as copepods/phytoplankton, along with breeding hybridized fish and setting up an educational research facility for the research into their pharma-logical, bone grafting, grafting and hybridization etc, properties etc. Sponges too, will be propagated and researched.

    We don't ever pluralize a word by using an apostrophe. Only numerals and letters get that treatment.

    What do you mean by "grow them out"? Couldn't you simply say "grow them"?

    Is it Kigigi or Kijiji?

    Saying that a price range for something is from $5 to $100 makes sense. However, saying that the price is from $5 to $100 each is something else altogether.

    Re: Propagating Coral, General Paragraphs And Help With Coherence.

    There are gallons of water, gallons of milk, and gallons of gasoline. See?

    Also, say:

    I also plan to cultivate food species such as copepods and phytoplankton....
