Lol. I think back a lot. Remembering the size of some of my corals to what they are now amazes me. I got to be doing something right. Lol.

Ok. Have a question for you guys- is anyone else's torch coral a true predator?

My torch grabs and pulls my plate coral over to it if I forget to feed it silversides. At first I thought I was crazy. But I did an experiment last night. I used a dry erase marker to mark out where I put my plate coral to see if it was just the torch getting longer or the plate moving. Well- it turns out my plate moved 4.5 inches over night and the torch had its tentacles on it. Of course, I have now moved the plate over closer to the other one. But I find it really odd. This was an ongoing thing for about two weeks. Every few days I would have to get the grabber out and move the plate further back away from the torch. The torch would have its tentacles on the plate and I would have to separate them. Neither coral has any sting marks or damage- but still. It's aggravating.

I hope you don't mind a side question... Are you plates inflated during the day and night or just day, just night? My plate only inflates after 9pm for a few hours and then deflates again...

I have 3 plates. 2 short and 1 long tentacle. The long tentacle is open at all times of lights on. The shorts take a little longer to open- but will stay open past lights out as well.

Of course, I have sort of "trained" my corals to be open I guess since I feed early in the day to include oyster juice and phyto

Woohoo! My clowns are now hosting my torch coral instead of my welso brain! My welso wasn't happy with them and I used little mirrors behind the torch and in two weeks the clowns started hosting the torch! Now that I took the mirrors out though they are probably wondering where the other clowns (the ones in the mirror) went. Lol.

Btw- I got this torch a few months back. It was little. It has exploded in my tank. Lol. The clown in the pic is a 3 inch clown.

Btw Jesse - I know you wanted a purple tang- but I've heard that pretty much they are impossible to get now since the conflict is going on over in Africa. Something about not shipping them out anymore. Sorry.
