Not sure exactly how it does it, but I bought one that had a huge skeleton that and half of it had dies off. Since then 3 small little colonies formes there and are now covering it.

I have had mine 5 years with no reproduction. but I have heard that they will under ideal conditions that they will produce small buds that will show up on the skelaton.

Ok so do these buds show up on the opposite side of where the bubbles are at?

On mine I have this strange white thing growing slowley un the other side of the bubble in its hard or out of its hard skeloton. I guess you could call it a bud. It looks sor of like a white polyup or something. It looks liek a white pimple.

I can try to take a picture but I doubt with its location that it would really come out.

Think this could be it reproducing? I have been directly feedign mine each week and he has definitly grown since. Maybe you should try direct feeding yours a piece of shrimp he might like it.

I dont target feed anything in my tank except my carnation and sun polyps and that only plankton. I`ve seen many a coral killed from target feeding not to say that it`s wrong. There is plenty of light in the tank that helps to feed most corals in the tank. Many people do target feed and that`s good as long as it does not overfeed. I just choose not to.
