    Let them grow out. When they get big enough, they'll dissolve the calcium attachment point themselves and let themself free. I will snip the ones that grow too close so they don't grow into irregular shapes.

    Congratulations! You're a fungia parent. This one has been producing for me for over 8 years now.

    I read somewhere where an individual had left a dead plate in their tank and then one day they had a baby plate sprout. I am curious to see how it progresses. Keep us posted

    That's exactly what happened with mine. Dead plates can spawn daughter anthocauli colonies as a survival strategy. That's why you should never throw away a dead plate.

    Same thing happened to my hammer frag. It was one head. Died. I never took it out of my tank. A year later I saw little baby hammer heads all around the sides. Now it's giant colony
