Brain coral reproduction

Does anybody know if pineapple brain corals reproduce asexually? I found a small glob about the size of a pencil eraser next to my pineapple brain that is the same color and looks like a tiny new colony. I moved it to a safe spot in the tank two weeks ago and it appears to be growing.Am I seeing things or did a new colony form? Thanks Jamie

Yep, that is how they grow. Was it part of the coral or completely seperate? Normal reproduction is just a split and formation of two from one. You can frag them using a tile saw (wet).

It was completely seperate from the main coral. It looks to be growing well, guess we have two now.
