View Full Version : Candy cane Coral Splitting

When I first got my 3 headed candy cane frag, they each had a single mouth. Now, after a few months, 2 of the heads are starting to develop 2 mouths and the feeder tentacles (almost did it again cocoa, lol) are getting narrower towards the middle, like its splitting into 2 heads

I didn't know they did this until recently and wanted to share it with everyone

Thank you. It is cool watching them grow and half the reason I got into the hobby.

Update 3-2 Its now Up to 8 mouths and soon to be 8 heads. I've repositioned it since the last picture it it seems to be splitting every week-week and a half.

Yup, it is very cool to watch. Candy Canes are one of the faster growing LPS, that head division doesn't take long, especially when you are target feeding.

I hope its at least trippled in a few months so I can start spreading it around the local reef club:hmm3grin2orange:

Nice! My 3 heads recently became 6! I'm looking forward to more soon also. Very cool to watch.
