    My hammer has 25 heads. One of them has tentacles that is a lot longer than the others. Why is this?

    They extend themselves like that when trying to sting something near them, not the other heads but they will try and sweep other corals next to them.

    That is very odd. Mine extends one or two after feeding, but then its a few tentacles from each head, not all from one like yours.
    How long has it been doing this?

    Mine also do it most of the time. I think it is because of warfare with other corals, even though they are not that close to it.
