[Coral-List] Methods for nubbinising tabular corals?

Dear coral-list,

I was wondering if anyone had any prior experience with creating nubbins from 
tabular acroporids (A.cytherea, A.clathrata etc) for tank experiments. 
The 'traditional' (vertical) method using plasticine and cups for creating 
nubbins from branching corals doesn't seem applicable - the fragments i am 
using are ~5cm in length, and need to be kept in an 'in-situ' form (i.e. 
horizontal) with minimal contact with live tissue. Any recommendations would be 
greatly appreciated.
