I have a healthy big torch coral that seems to be producing "babies".





Never heard of this. I'm not very clued up on corals - would love to get some input from the experienced members.

How many are there?
Ive had a frogspawn grow small heads out of its base, but never seen smaller ones growing on surrounding rocks.

There are at least 3 which I can easily see on the one rock. I'll scout for more.

I marked the 3 that are easily visible. There seems to be also growing new heads out of the base of the coral.

@459b - David do you still stay near Sonstraaldam? If so I'm in walking distance if you want to come and take a look.

I spotted a 4th little torch on the rock. It also seems new multiple heads are growing out of the big torch.
