    can i frag this? and what is it really?

    Id wait till you get more polyps. Target feed it more often it will grow faster, make sure when you feed it that it takes all the food. Dont want to foul the water. SHut the power heads off when you feed so the food don't get blown away. Good luck

    Failed lights

    Depends on what you got for lights now. Lethers aren't as light demanding as other corals like sps. What kind of working fixture you got what kind and type of bulb you are using ?

    Cost of running a Saltwater tank?

    Dont give up I have seen some good deals on C LIst. Just make sure you do some research on saltwater and what tipe of system you want to keep. If you buy right the first time you'll only buy once, the cost of replacing equipment and or stock could make it cost more than it need to. Good luck.
