Branching hammer sweepers

I have had this hammer for a little while now. I noticed some time ago that there are sweeper tentacles coming out of only one of the heads. The rest look normal, but no sweeper extension. Is this a normal phenomenon or should I move it around?

Sounds normal to me. They'll form even in quiet currents.

Do the sweepers appear to be "reaching" for any other corals in particular? I found my torch "stretching" to get to a stylophora... no matter what I did.

No, they don't seem to be reaching for anything in particular. They just come out and flop around most of the day. I was curious, just because there are 6 heads on it and only one has sweepers that come out. The rest just look normal.

Doesn't sound like anything to worry about. On my huge torch with I don't know how many heads, I only had like two or three tentacles as sweepers.

I agree with Kurt. Nothing to worry about.
