    My tank was getting overrun with flatworms a few months ago, but I had a horrid experience with Flatworm Exit. However, it did get rid of most of the flatworms except for the ones stuck to my long tentacle plate coral. I tried sucking them off with a baster originally, but damaged some...

    While doing a nighttime tank scan with my penlight tonight I noticed my cute little 2" plate coral extending mesenterial filaments about 10 inches long and attacking my hammer coral! These filaments are very hard to see and resemble spider webs in size. I likely have scanned right past them...

    Maybe a stupid question, but here goes.... This guy came in on a large piece of zoas over a year ago - at the time it was only barely larger than the other polyps - now it's about 3" across! Is this a plate coral? I read that they prefer to be on the sand and that they'll detach - is that true?

    Hey guys quick question...do you guys think $70 is a good price for an orange short tentacle plate coral? The guy at the store said it's an exotic plate but knowing how stores work, i don't know if it's worth it. The color is light orange with like a yellow tint to it but it looks really bright...

    I turned off my powerhead and put it rightside up. How long do you think it will take for it to ground itself? It was getting whipped around the tank like a cow in a tornado HAHA

    I am wondering if my plate coral needs to be moved. I have it in a corner on the substrate with little flow and low to moderate lighting with LEDs. It seemed to be looking pretty good when I first moved in about 3 weeks ago. Now, I come home and it's mouth is gaping open! It did eat tonight, but...

    I have a purple rim plate coral that looks very healthy. But the last few days, my pistol shrimp has decided to dump substrate on the sides of it. My plate coral is about 4 inches around and the shrimp has put about an inch of substrate on one side. Will this hurt the plate coral? Do I need to...
