Short Tentacled Plate Corals are bottom dwelling stony corals. Its skeleton forms a cupped disc with ridges that radiate from a central oral opening. These corals come in a variety of colors, usually green, pink, or purple and are a relatively hardy species. Short tentacles extend upward on the upper side of the animal.
These corals have a medium aggressiveness rating because they are mobile on an open surface and can sting other corals that it may come into contact with it.
Place this specimen on a gravel or rubble bottom in direct light with a medium to low water movement. They will produce their own food through photosynthesis but will also accept frozen food such as mysis shrimp or brine shrimp. They are quite interesting to watch and will actually pass the food up the tentacles to the mouth of the coral.
