Sounds like you'll be just fine with it.

Whelp it looked good this am, even better in the afternoon. The whites go off at 9:00, and the feeding tentacles were extended, so I gave my first go at spot feeding with some mysis. Musta been hungry lol. Really neat feeling watching it eat, can't wait for more corals. The BEST part is, I saw my wife pull up the ottoman and gaze into
the fish tank for a good 15 mins...

Lol. I know the feeling. When my niece is in town with my sister she ALWAYS has to come down and see my tank. Always "has to see the fishes". Ironic since my tank only has fish to feed the clam/corals through the water column really...

There's a very high "social demand" for salt water aquariums, as it seems lol... Very visually appealing, and incredibly intriguing. I was even at a pet store once buying a filter and the clerk said they gave me credit for attempting a salt water tank... It's just a very enjoyable hobby, as frustrating and patience testing as it
is.

On the trumpet coral side of things, I was told if I kept this guy fed, it would grow like wildfire. I am aware "wildfire" is very relative, but when these
grow, does the size of each head increase, or do multiple heads begin to branch off? And at what rate... Let's say monthly? In inches, heads, etc..?

Mine grows nicely without feeding. I don't feed anything besides my fish.

Awesome thanks for your help Hank... Kind of nerve racking being only my second coral. Now only if my nassarius snails will make an appearance lol.

I only keep them down in my sandbed and nerite snails. Pyramid snails destroyed the rest of the population...and it is one nassarius and 3 nerite in my 55.

In my case, I bought a frag 12 months ago, it had 3 heads, I've moved it around quite a few times (up/down/left and right). It has been fine in every resting place, white LEDs have now increased the head count to 4.
Woohoo probably my fave coral.
Ps I've never spot fed it

So why do a couple of the heads look great:

And a couple look not so great:

Is it flow, lighting, etc on that particular side of it?

Good advice. All they need is the lighting and water column.
