Sniperhank would you recommend feeding or not? It seems that you do not recommend it. I just bought a plate coral and was not going to feed it but then i read that alot of people do... also liveaquaria says that "this coral is regularly taking mysis, etc..." So I'm confused... i would rather not if i don't need to.

You don't have to feed them. I do agree though, that it's cool to watch, plus, they seem to do better with a feeding here and there.

You know I must be the oddball out, my plate is always inflated with tentacles flowing. I've never seen it look the way I see them always pictured except when I acclimated it.

I knew it was sick that's why I was seeking help on here. It still had about half it's body green at the time of my original post. So I was trying to see if it could be saved. I should have fragged the living portion before it was to late. But I didn't because I was hoping it would grow back after I started treating it. The pics I posted are the same coral like AbsoluteFaye said.
