    Very nice! Feed that thing and it will grow and spread very quickly. Wait until after lights out, when it puts its feeding tentacles out.

    Looks exactly like my trumpet, I feed every 3 nights, and mine spread from 5 heads to now almost 20 in no time at all.

    Candy canes and trumpets are the same.

    It won't grow if you don't feed it. Or, it will grow very slowly. Candy canes/trumpets are one of the corals that seem to benefit the most from feedings. It really makes a difference with them. You can feed it meaty foods, like frozen mysis, krill or brine. Use a turkey baster to gently blow the food on them when their tentacles are out. I have 6 different types of candy canes in my tank -- I feed them often, and they grow one or two new heads every month.
