I have a stubby finger leather that has been consisting dropping branches for 6 months now. I am not sure if this is a sign of stress or good health. The branches turn white at the base then droop down and fall off. The whole process takes a week or so. The branchs then attach to rocks and look very healthy. The mother colony has it polyps extended most of the time and new branches are starting to grow back on the mother colony. About 3/4 of the original branches have dropped off. It is nice to have frags but I would like to see the mother colony grow larger. Any thoughts??
