This whole “coral fragging” phenomenon must be working out because Gryphon seems to be doing brisk business selling tools to take coral colonies apart. Aquarium Specialty working closely with Gryphon saws is proud to announce there’s now a new bigger and badder CR series AquaSaw for cutting up even bigger corals.
The new Gryphon CR42 AquaSaw is defined by a new longer 42″ blade for even more cutting action. The cutting stage of the Gryphon CR42 now supports the saw blade up for cutting corals up to 5.5 inches (14cm) thick. The wide berth of the Gryphon CR42 should be thick enough for parting out the thickest Acans, Moon corals, and even for carefully separating some of the ever-nicer colonies of Lobophyllia available in recent years.
Save for the length of the blade, the Gryphon CR42 is more or less identical to the previous Gryphon AquaSaw, so a square foot of working area, recirculating water for clean cuts and water resistant parts across the board. The extra cutting height of the 42″ AquaSaw is only a 10% price bump for a retail price of $439, a meager price for coral dealers to pay in order to be able to process even greater coral colonies.
