Attack of the plate coral

Had a long tentacle plate move a good foot to reach a frogspawn today. I knew they could move a little but thought I had plenty of space between them. Guess not

The plate won for sure. Frog spawn still retracted. I just hope it doesn't happen again. The other side about a foot away is a maxi mini. Who wins that one?
Here's a pic. Sorry it's crappy. You can barley see a tentacle pulling the frogspawn towards it

Ya I don't know who would win between a plate and a nem, but I know I wouldn't want to find out. I'm hoping your rouge plate decides that war wasn't for it and stays put.

Yeah, plate corals can inflate themselves and move pretty efficiently across the sandbed. Just move the frogspawn to where the plate didn't want to be.
