    Give them time, they may not drop off until they are an inch or larger in diameter. I think that inch will be their skeleton.

    New pics of the mystery...

    as you can see, they are both getting HUGE (the biggest one has got to be pushin 2" across, tried to show, but without putting the money IN the tank its hard)! But are staying attached to the frag they popped up on. Its weird because their flesh are much larger than their skeleton..unlike fungia i see in the store...i dunno...these 2 corals just have me baffled :-/ fun to look at tho! ;D
