Candycane or Trumpet?

What exactly is this? Also if you will notice the polyp (if that is right) has 2 mouths, does this mean it is going to split or multiply? Thanks!

Not sure why it didn't show up. I posted it below.



I agree with Mike.

I don't know either....It was sold as candycane. I thought it was trumpet also. Does the fact that it has 2 mouths mean it will split or multiply or does this coral grow similar to that of frogspawn by adding heads??

They are mislabeled all the time. In actuallity the trumpet and candycane are so similar to each other they are practically the same thing. Same genus, different species. I agree with the fellas though, looks like a trumpet to me.

The mouth is a sign of growing, but it will be a while before another head develops. Upwards of a year or more is my guess. My Lobophyhillia is making new mouths now, so I'm excited too.

Hmmm...based on those pics (thanks btw Melosu58) my coral more resembles the candy cane then the trumpet. Maybe after it grows a bit more it will be easier to know for sure. what ever it is I like it and it is doing well, and it was only $2. Love those little frags!

Figures. My LFS still sells frags at near full price! The cheapest I've ever seen was $15.

Ok...here are the pics....


This is the pick taken back when I originally posted this thread. I don't remember the date but it's been a few months:


This is the pic taken today:


What do you guys think? Doesn't it look like it's splitting? I'm talking about the LEFT coral...the one on the right isn't in the first pic...just the left one.
