It responds when I put food on its arms it is expanded and generally seems happy, if it wasn't would it move? Do you think I should...

    Duncan

    Duncan coral is growing loads of new heads but doesn't appear to be getting a bigger skeleton. Is this normal growth? Sent from my SM-G981B using Tapatalk
