Candy Cane coral with 2 mouth openings?

Hi hi,

Long time I haven't posted anything new My tank has been doing really great. However, I think my candy cane corals are FAT now and one of the head used to have only one opening for eating time, now it has 2, does that mean it's going to split into 2 heads? How big should candy cane grows? I felt mine is really FAT. I gave you pics when I get home. Thanks in advance!

Usually if you see two mouths then that`s a good sign. You must really have a great tank going there.

He??? Really? so if it does split into two heads, it would grow a branch to support it or just become two heads in one branch?

The branch can infact support 2 heads I have a candy cane that has 10 heads and only 3 or 4 branches LOL .. They can sprout new branches but it takes alot of calcium to do that .. You will eventually see new branches given time ...
