Good afternoon reefers. So i have read that the trunk splits first then the flesh part. Is this splitting or just going to have multiple heads? How do torch corals get a wider trunk? It looks too top heavy. Had it less than 2 weeks and this has happened rather quickly. Is there anything i should be doing because all the photos on line look nothing like this when searching for splitting torch.

Thank you in advance for any help.

It looks like a second head, but it could be too early to say. It's definitely not top heavy. At some point it may be happier up on the rocks somewhere than in the sand.
Will it totally seperate and move onto the sand or stay as one coral?
