From what I know of plates (fungia) is they all fall into either short or long tentacled types which I have a solid orange short tentacle and its sweepers are out all day and all night. That's all my lps though like my acans and brains too which for the life of me I can't figure out why but they are still growing fast and beautifully colored so I can't complain lol. Honestly even during mid day mine is inflated like a balloon about to burst lol

Yeah, only my trumpet is like that. Kind of ironic since I thought it was dead before I put it into the 55. It's odd how I have difficulty with Lps, but my sps do so well. I'm thinking that when I finally get around to upgrading tanks that ill give it all the bells and whistles. I'm thinking about calcium reactor, reef keeper, ats, and whatever else I can think of putting on it. I just love my toys lol. Just need to find a reef ready tank for the right price. Last one that was decent was one that came with an 8 t5ho. It made the price too high for my liking. Everything else I find is people who have algae filled tanks that they think are worth hundreds more than it really is. Don't know why anyone would want to buy a tank full of green water. Oh well, not my problem it seems.
Back to my plate. It acts just like was stated before. Inflated at night and shows skeleton during the day. It freaks me out. The purple rim has increased in intensity, so it has to be doing well in its shades overhang in the sand.

Your last clam didnt make it! A nem will kill all your coral. If you must order something... I suggest blue hornet zoas.

It's an easier clam this time. You're right, forget the nem. No more zoas though, they aren't as fun as other coral. I just love sandbed corals, like plates and brains. I don't have a brain in my tank...I killed the last 2 with my lighting. Well, spent a huge amount anyway. Dumped the nem. Added a plum crazy acro, a coco worm, nem crab, and a bumble bee snail ontop of the mystery brain and derasa clam.

Ok, where was I. Been home from work for alittle bit now. Did some rearranging of the tank in anticipation of the new coral next week. First time I've been thankful about my RBTA moving to the back of the tank... Anyway, moved the birds nest...which is just massive, and it freed up a ton of space. Anyway, room in the sandbed for my brain and clam and cocoworm. A nice spot has been picked out for the new plum crazy acro as well. Gf's favorite color too.

NOW I'm officially done...nothing else will fit. Literally.

Won't fit?? Then it's time to frag some, sell and buy more.

Lol if only. There aren't many other reefers in the middle of allegheny national forest. It's a long drive down to Pittsburgh as well. That's also why all of my stuff is ordered in. I have some hairy mushrooms I found at Petco, but that's it. I was lucky to find them the day they arrived. The hunt for a larger tank continues.
