LTA Attacts Long tennicle Plate Coral!

When I came home today my LTA had moved across the tank and attacted my LT plate coral. I lifted them out of the tank to get them apart but both have alot of damage to their tennicles. Will they recover from this battle? Is there anything I can do to help them? The LTA seams to have the worst damage. I don't know how long they were together. The LTA has been in the same spot for a few weeks now but the Plate I just moved yesterday to the bottom. It was on a rock but was moving closer to the edge so I moved it before it fell off. Thanks, Rory

Agreed, as long as the water specs are good both should recover just fine. I would suggest turning the plate coral the other way though. The damaged area looks like it's facing into the flow. Having the damaged area face "leeward" of the flow would lessen any addition recession. Also be sure it remains clear of debris.

Cheers
Steve

Thanks for the tip Steve, I will turn him now.Thats why I like this site I would not have known to turn him had I not posted the pic. and I don't know anyone local that even has a SW tank much less a reef. So thanks again. They look alot better today. I will post an update on the recovery later. Rory
