What is a "head"

Hi there,

I know, I have lot's of questions!!! :p

So I found two local blogs that are selling frags. Now I understand a frag is some sort of section removed from a larger coral for propagation? That about right?

Now they speak a lot about "heads" when they speak in terms of selling quantity. Like Polyps, 15 to 20 heads for $15 CAD. I am trying to understand what a head is.

Thank you!

It's the individual polyp. So if there are 20 polyps then that's 20 heads.
