Frogspawn question

So I bought this the frogspawn from a LFS and I got about $20 off bc it was labeled as a 2 headed FS but the 2nd head was 98% dead and only had a tiny speck of flesh on it. Anyways after I got it home algae grew on the dead head that had the tiny piece of flesh on it, but miraculously the tiny speck of flesh started to grow and now even shows a new mouth it looks like.. my question is should I try to scrape the algae off that is still on the recovering head or just leave it be. The flesh that has grown back looks really delicate and I'm kinda worried I'd rip it off if i attempted to scrape the algae off but I think it would be doable.

Don't touch it, if it is growing and doing okay let it go for now. Scraping might cause more damage than it is worth. It has found a way to live so I would let it go.

Agree. Just let it be. You would likely do more harm than good.
