Babies getting big. I have 3 all together. Sold the mother colony a few months ago.
Just not sure if the babies with start branching off from the rock? Has anyone had torch/frog grow from eggs?

I found a tiny torch growing on a new coral, after 2-3 months I found it, the size of a grain of rice when I found it. Now it is pea size when closed up.


I assume yours will eventually grow a stalk, but that will take some time. I know it has been a while since they were spawned....maybe give it (more) food?

Thanks guys. Yea maybe I should feed. I haven't feed corals directly in years.
As for size. When they close at night they are the size of half a dime. It retracts into a tight lil ball since it has no stalk. And during day it the size of a dollar coin or a lil bigger

Update. The babies aren't that small anymore. They have not split though. Still single heads growing out of the side of the rock. No branching at all.
Only have 2 left. Traded one of them that was attached to a mag rock. The mother colony I sold 2 years ago. It never spawned in that members tank. Sorry that my pic skills sucks. Never can get the colors thru pics
