My Fungia has had babies. The problem that I have is that there are about six on a very small piece of dead coral. They seem pretty stuck and I need to know how I can get them off to move them onto another surface. Can this be done? Will they grow onto each other if I leave them where they are?

Hi Alfie - just want to double-check - are you actually talking about corralimorphs or Fungia? Just want to make sure...
(Where Corralimorphs = "Mushrooms, i.e. Discosoma, or Rhodactis/Ricordia" and Fungia = "plate coral" - LPS)...

Many thanks.
Jacques

WOW Alfie! That's cool that your Fungia plate coral has gotten babies! This is the 1st time I hear of these corals propagating by themselves in an enclosed aquarium.... Even though it is obvious that they should be able to!
Congratulations!

Thanks Kanga and Les. Do you guys think I should try and remove them onto something bigger so they don't grow into each other.

Just an update on the babies. They have all survived and have grown nicely. Will take photos over the weekend again.
