I bought this dunking frag recently but about 4 days after buying it i noticed there was a new head growing from it. I didn't see it when dipping or placing but maybe it sprouted before i put it in or it just did within the couple days. The problem is, the head is facing directly toward the rock. I will try to get a photo but it's a bad angle. However, I know dunkins branch out towards the light but will it even survive with this little amount of light. I feed the corals and they get plenty of light so would the mother dunking help feed the new head until it branches up to the light? or should I turn the frag so the head is facing the light? Thanks!

All my baby heads are shielded from the light by the mature heads. As long as it’s eating and not showing any sign of stress it should get growing and eventually grow up and out towards the light. Happy reefing!
