Ok so... After "lights out" the plate coral is turning brown and the pale pink rim is not hot pink and he looks like he's puffing up slowly. Do I have false hope? Or am I right to believe he might be holding on? Fingers crossed!!!

Corals can be surprisingly hardy. I don't remove a coral until there is absolutely no tissues left and then I still leave the skeleton for a day or two to be sure.

I've said already I'm leaving it in. It looks cool and it could possible spawn.... Just wishing/hoping its actually alive. Lol

What my brother in arms said. Corals are sometimes crazy hardy, even if they can be difficult to keep. I have a purple na na in my tank that died during a power outage. I always leave skeletons in my tank for this reason...one of which is a plate coral if it makes you feel better...but one day I went to move the tissue-less skeleton to discover 2 small patches of tissue left! I have been watching it slowly regrow over its own skeleton over the last few months.
