    Plate babies? Now what?

    I had a couple plates die. I kept them in the tank.

    Will they detach or when they get bigger do I need to free them?

    These were spots on the plate that never quite died.


    These I don't know.

    I would feed them for sure, especially if you lost the parent plate.

    I don't know what they are. I'm going to let them grow.

    Good luck! I hope they turn into something really cool. Like the strange mushroom-looking thing I had, that only many years later became identifiable as a beautiful Lobophyllia.

    It looks like you can see a skeleton inside the polyps in the first photo, so I'd definitely grow them.

    The first pic are definitely plates but the others.....

    The plates been dead and in there probably a year now. It's been buried at times thanks to my goby so I'm not sure what they are. The look like nothing else in my tank. ?

    This tank is 4 years old and I haven't put any new rock in this tank ever. The last time I added anything new was over a year and a half ago. I don't have anything that looks like this in the tank.
