We will choose a beautiful specimen for you from our assortment of plate corals in stock that will leave you amazed at the quality and value. The Plate Coral is interesting and easy to care for, and that makes it a good choice for novice aquarists. It requires only moderate lighting and little to no water movement. It is often referred to as a Disk, Mushroom, Chinaman, Fungia Plate, or Tongue Coral. The Plate Coral shows thick skeletal structure that grows fast and needs a supplement of calcium and trace element in order to flourish. Supplement feedings of meaty foods, Mysis shrimps can be given as target food to them for a continued good health. Since, the Plate Coral has short tentacles, it is considered semi aggressive and is capable of defending itself by stinging its neighbors. Its unique characteristics ensures its survival, i.e. its inherit ability to move itself to more favorable locations by way of inflating and deflating its tissues. The Plate Coral should be placed on a soft substrate, and it thrives well in a temperature range of 74-81 degree Fahrenheit. An interesting fact regarding the Plate Coral is that it exhibits a unique behavior called polyp bailout that is to produce offspring in the event of death. This even happens three or four months after the coral dies and the offspring grows out of the skeleton and eventually move to the sand bed. It can be further fragged, or cut into half, to make two colonies. Though the Plate Coral is a photosynthetic in nature, it also benefits from a small piece of raw table shrimp, frozen Mysis shrimp, silverside once a week. After the lights are turned on the Plate Coral extends its feeding tentacles and quickly accepts food.
