The Green Plate Coral is an interesting and easy to care coral that makes it a very 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 Green Plate Coral shows thick skeletal structure that grows faster 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 Green Plate Coral has short tentacles, it is considered as semi aggressive and is capable of defending itself by stinging its neighbors. Its unique characteristics ensure its survival, i.e. the inherit ability to move itself to more favorable locations by way of inflating and deflating its tissues. The Green 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 Green 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. Moreover, it can be fragged, or cut into half, to make two colonies. Though the Green 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 Green Plate Coral extends its feeding tentacles and quickly accepts food. The Green Plate coral looks wonderful under actinic light and adds a splash of vibrant green to any aquarium. The Green Plate coral is photosynthetic and also benefits from the additional feeding of zooplankton, Mysis or brine shrimp.
