The Race For Life. Who Will Win?

So when I bought my war coral favia a spiraloid worm colonized on the disk. Well needless to say the favia began to encrust onto the spiraloid worm and now for the last couple months its been a race it seems as the spiraloid worm extends to keep feeding and the favia keeps encusting. So I'm wondering has.anyone had this happen? Is there an end to this or will it keep going back and forth until its at the surface of the water lol. I would love it if it would grow a few more inches. Would look pretty interesting lol

I will, I'm out of town right now, but when I get back I'll try to get one. It's interesting to watch, that's for sure!

Here is my meteor shower. It has several scorpid worms and feather dusters that it has encrusted. They are all still in their tubes. Really cool look.
