Fungia is a genus of corals in the family Fungiidae. Fungia corals are mostly solitary, with some species growing up to 12 inches in diameter. Fungia Plate corals can be found in the "short tentacle" or the "long tentacle" varieties. Plate corals are large polyp stony (lps) corals. They exist in a variety of colors like green, orange, pink, purple, red, and blue. With so many color options and the relatively low care requirements, it's easy to see why a lot of Reef Chasers choose the Fungia Plate coral.
Fungia Plate coralsrequire moderate lighting combined with low to medium water movement. We recommend 150-250 PAR. Plate corals are typically found living in the rubble around the reef. They will be happiest laying on the bottom of your reef in the substrate. Try to choose an area where sand doesn't blow on them as it irritates them. Fungia Plates have the ability to inflate themselves to remove sand and to increase their exposure to light, but it's best to put them in an area where they don't have to expend so much effort.
