Kenya Tree

I bought a Kenya Tree about 6 months ago as my first coral. Seems to have done nicely. It was a small fragment at the time. Fully extended all three "branches" measure about 3 inches. I do noticed it extends further in less turbulent water. At this point should I cut each branch off the plug and glue them to some rubble and place strategically around the tank? Should I just leave them alone?

Thanks,

I just got my first two Kenyas for my tanks a couple of weeks ago, is it normal for them to randomly shrink down to a nub in the middle of the day cycle

Mine did for about a month. After that they seemed to settle down and are extended for the majority of the light cycle. Also, as I mentioned below mine doesn't like high flow or when I move it by hand.

They are very hardy and easy to keep. Depends on what you want your tank to look like I guess.

My Kenya finally shrank down and expelled the water in it, now it is starting to re-inflate so hopefully all is well
