I could be wrong but to me, two heads would be two branches/polyps of a branching LPS coral.

Yes 2 branches. The frogspawn and hammer are cool corals and 2 heads could be about the size of a baseball ... maybe. Candy can is cool too. Sounds like a good deal to me.

Like they said each head is a separate coral attached by a skeleton branch/base. The trade sounds fair if thats what you want. They are nice corals, i would have them email a pick of the corals or see them in the tank before they bag them up. Some heads can be big golf ball size to baseball and some can be dime size depending on age. So i would ask before the trade if a pic can't be sent. Candy cane heads tend to be smaller the FW and hammers. They are nice corals also.
