What kind of plate coral? Plating montipora? Fungia? Cycloseris?

Give it proper lighting, water, food, and time.

It will be happy on the sand with medium to moderate flow. It will eat small to medium meaty foods and even pellets (mine would). Just make sure nothing lands on it

They can actually clear themselves by inflating so I would not worry too much.

I was following the thread a few days back, how is the plate coral now? I have two and both are brilliant! Has more colour come out in yours?
