Have to cut coral frag QT short - tips?

Unfortunately, I’m going to be cutting my isolated QT of a new frag much, much shorter than I would’ve liked. Is there anything I can do to help reduce my chances to a tomont on the frag? (It’s a torch). If I scrub any of the stony part with a toothbrush and change the frag plug will it help reduce my chances? Or is it certain that I’m moving a tomont over to my DT?

This particular frag has only been in a fishless system for 9 days.

No. Aussie gold torches and some other LPS. I found a emerald crab dangerously close to one of them. Possible I have a rogue jerk of a crab eating them, but not sure. Trying to trap him as well.

Got enough PO4 and NO3 in the tank? Sometimes you have to dose both of those in a fishless frag tank, especially for LPS & soft corals.
Honestly, haven’t even tested that. I’ve been feeding and doing regular water changes with water from my established DT where all corals are thriving. I’ll test tomorrow.
