Is my candy cane splitting? I see it has 2 mouths now.

Recommended Posts

I have been feeding it LRS reef frenzy regularly 2-3 times a week at night for the past month.

I have to use a tube to block off the cleaner shrimp.   Otherwise, he'd steal the food right out of the candy cane's mouth.

It's definitely growing and splitting into two heads, a fun process to witness! Post some progress photos here if you can 🙂

I will.  Just bought a filter for phone camera.  I noticed it over the weekend so this is day 3.  It's like watching a slow motion mitosis.

Yes!  Once they’re happy with placement with multiple feedings, they will take off. I’ve reduced mine to weekly broadcast feedings ( no shrimp) and they continue to multiply.

The oblong shape are clearly defined with polyps extended.   This is just after "sunrise" this morning from the Bluefish mini controller.

I noticed the feeding tentacles come out during feeding (obviously) and after the lights go out until the following morning - active feeders.

Today I can see the fissure clearly separate the 2 mouths (pic 1).

 

The other candy cane head is also appearing to split (pic 2).

 

And the acan coral and hammer coral are also in reproducing mode.    Notice the baby acan head (pic 3) and some of the hammer coral polyps are stubby (pic 4).
