    Ive had this frogspawn for a while and has been doing good. But now it is growing a little piece at the bottom which is white. Should I cut this piece off and put it somewhere else?

    Thanks

    Sorry, can't see too much from pic.

    Is it a new head forming? or a old one dying off. ---

    Because of its position, light may be an issue and it is bleaching out.

    Ill see if I can take a better pic tommorow. I dont really know if its an old piece or new piece so would not be able to tell you. You think I should cut it off anyways? It does not get much light since the other heads block out the light.

    Thanks

    I've had cases where the heads growing under much cover bleach out due to the light being blocked.

    Hey IBM, try turning the heads around. I hope its not to late as I fear it is.

    If it's an old head or a new head, the fact that it's white means that it's not getting enough light. I've found that once euphyllia corals go completely white and retracted (which yours doesn't look like it is...yet) that they're very difficult to bring back.
