open brain growing more mouths

My open brain is huge. When the lights are on he expands to about the size of a dessert plate. He had three mouths on him when we got him, and when I looked up care requirements for lighting and flow I saw that they seem to have a maximum of three mouths.

Now I know that isn't true. It now has four mouths, and possibly five. I think I saw a fifth, but it depends on how expanded it is to be able to see it properly.

Anyone know how many mouths is the maxiumum, or how big this thing will get?

The sky is the limit. Looks like he`s growing pretty good. I sure would like to see a pic of this monster.

Here he/she is. Where you can see the two lobes starting to pinch together, there are two mouths before the pinch and three after.

It's about an inch from the front glass and goes about to the halfway mark of my 90G

Very nice. The sign of a healthy tank.
