    I went home this weekend and I found my Toadstool with this.... I am not to worried because I have seen it with a hole multiple times. The only thing that is different this time is that the hole is probably the size of the rim of a soda can and probably as deep as my finger.

    should i be worried?

    here are some pics for reference.

    Do you have Lugol's Solution or an Iodine based coral dip?

    Mine has done the same thing. It seems like it started splitting apart when it got real large. It split at the area that it already had a crease. It freaked out for a while and now its polyps fully extend again.

    Don't worry it will heal after some time.
