Anyone ever have their brain coral eat another coral? My Kenya tree propogated over night and I woke up to my brain coral ingesting the branch that broke off. I tired to gently blow it out of its mouth with a feeder tube but he won’t let it go ‍♀️

Corals don’t have taste buds. They kind of take in whatever they can latch onto. I’ve had SPS frags fall into the mouths of LPS that have large mouths. They’d eat rocks if you fed to them.
