Default how candy cane coral grows?

I'm not sure how candy cane coral grows. I've had the thought that maybe a head grows another mouth and it splits? Anyone know? Thanks!

You guessed it. The head gets really big and eventually you see another mouth, then it splits.

I bought two Candy Canes about a year and a half ago each with 3-4 heads, now they both have over 20 heads, I recently bought a Neon Green Candy Cane with 4 heads, less than a month ago, it now has 5 heads, and is about to split again to a 6th head...

I had never target fed them until I started treating my tank with Crack, now I target feed them and have been seeing a massive improvement in growth and coloration...

Yep they grow huge heads and sudenly you'll see 2 heads in place of one. The tentacles on these things are amazing to watch when extended. I have one just neon green and one purple with green centers.

As for where they go when they split, they just cluster up on the same branch. They dont' really go anywhere, they just split.

Cool. THanks everyone for the info. I recently moved my candy cane and it is now getting extremely big and puffy, the color is great, too. I'm watching for a split.
