There does appear to be some tiny nubs. I changed the tank from 2 part to kalkwasser on 5/22/18. Ph for a day runs from 8.25 to just over 8.5. It has been a little unstable but I have been damping out the swings. Shooting for a max of 8.5 (Apex now doesn't allow the ATO to operate for Ph > 8.5). I'm also slowly bring up the Kh (desire 9.0 to 9.5) All the corals appear to be happier and more puffy.

Your off shoot is as big as the main zoa. That is a lot of growing in a month. Nice job!
