Baby frogspawn?

I just saw this in the tank today. It's new within the past 48hrs...could it be a frogspawn bud?

Are they asexual, or did a bud pop off the main frag (which has gotten pretty big)?

Awesome, either way

I want to move the main frag since it's starting to impede flow in the area, as evidenced by the algae on the sandbed. I can't wait for the big tank build

I am not sure exactly. I've seen a chunk of my frogspawn floating before. But it disappeared

This seems pretty well attached. I'm guessing I'll have to wait for it to get bigger before I detach and move it?

I'm following along. That's cool and I want to know if it is frogspawn. Keep us posted

I've never heard of this type of behavior in terms of reproduction with this family of coral. I remember seeing a similar phenomena when I had a torch coral and one of the heads died off...more than likely something stressed it out and it dropped a mini head or something.

I see this happen when my clowns get aggressive with my frogspawn. Just broken off tentacles. They float away to be consumed by other tank inhabitants.
