Frogspawn Question

Just picked up a frag of frogspawn today. It came with 4 stalks, all about 2 inches each growing on the rock. 3 of the stalks are dead, one is alive and well. Will the alive one grow and eventually cover and hide the ugly dead stalks?

Also, random question. I turned one of my powerheads off so my new frags had time to root themselves without being blown all around. Since then, My fish have come out a LOT more. My Green Manderin is always hiding, but since hes been out hanging around. As well as my clowns. It looks like I have enough flow in my tank atm. My return is on the left side shooting behind the rocks to move around any possible dead spots, and my power head thats on is at the top right of my tank shooting up and out. I can definitely tell that there is flow still in my tank. What you guys think? Should I leave the other off for good? Just afraid I have too much circulation and it makes my fish not want to come out.

If you want you can break the old heads off. I know when I got mine it had two good heads and three that were infected with the brown jelly disease. I just broke the infected one off.

What part do I cut? Just the heads, or the entire stalk? Here, I'll post a pic:

Mini hack saw blades work great, or a dremel tool. Just cut it where the white part blends into the darker area and you should be good.

That looks more like a hammer/anchor coral to me Saltwater Aquarium Corals for Marine Reef Aquariums: Hammer / Anchor Coral, Branching
Either way, cool piece. Just do as Mike and Kurt said and cut or break off the dead part.... not just the heads but the entire white area.

It`s not a frogspawn. It`s a branching hammer. I have one in my tank. I just broke it by hand. Snapped it off where they meet.
