    I've noticed this clear bulge on my frogspawn on 2 heads and I'm wondering if I should be concerned? Tentacles have fallen off of the actual bulge/bubble. I haven't noticed it doing poorly but if I need to remove a few heads if it becomes a problem I'd rather do it now. Any body have any suggestions? 20150702_184705.jpg

    Yeah, it's happened with frogspawns, hammers and a gorgonia for me, for the first two, I made sure they weren't getting blasted by flow, and just kept an eye on them. For the gorg, I did the opposite. All were fine, the bubble deflated in about two weeks. Not sure how or why it happens.

    For LPS, try not to irritate it.

    Ya I would just leave it. It looks like the head is just splitting from the other.
