Frogspawn - is this a new one?

I have cut them off once the flesh has receded up the stalk to the point that they are separated from the rest of the head. As long as the flesh is connected, then the polyps are sharing nutrients. Once they separate then you can cut the small one off and glue it to a rock where you want it (otherwise it is in the shade of the parent polyp).

Yep its a baby. Grats...so now your name will be "markdadof10"? If the light ever gets through the parents you will see the green buttons glowing slightly (or purple in your case). I had one for a few weeks that I debated back and forth between it being a baby and a filter feeder...finally the current hit just right and lit it up...only then was it totally clear to me that it was a baby. I have 3 babies on a 2 headed parent...how many heads on your parent. Sounds like they produced a nice crop:)

From my experiance I have never had one of those tiny babies make it. I have grown out many large frogspawns and Hammers and Torch corals and have had many of those small ones show up. They may stay for 5 or 6 months but something usually breaks them off or they die. All the heads that split will be fine though. Mabey you will have better luck with them
