Mine went from 3 to at least 20 in a matter of a couple of months. I feed my fish I see it catching some food, I feed rods food it basically feeds the fish and corals all at one time.

There are two different Blasto corals - Shamrock, it sounds like you and I may have the same coral. I typically comes with a single head, and just kinda gets bigger. Making sure that your calcium levels are good, will ensure a nice growth for this.

The other Blasto, like Carey, and I believe Joy has, are multiple head blasto's that grow in colonies. These are like polyps and zoo's that will continue to spread, get more heads, and expand.
