Why do the acans, blastos and echinos get all the love?
Am i the only one who is an avid fungiid collector? Here are a few images of awesome fungiids I have found over the years.
Fungia scutaria

This thread has promise. I may tag along. I think they are neat corals, though I don't have room for any in my current tank.

They dont need sand; in fact, they prefer to be on something hard,

Hey Hormie,
I picked up my orange and green one at an LFS. It had no green visible in it when I got it. The orange and blue one belongs to Joe, you'll have to ask him where he got his.

fungia's are my all time favorite coral. I want to dedicate a tank to them one day. That Orange and green one is insane! Is that a current picture of it?
Here is my new blue baby.

And a group shot of some of the others I have.

I love plates, I'm finally upgrading tanks so I can make my plate garden, I'm in the market for a bright green one, blue or red would be awesome but I've yet to see one for sale online.

My original orange


Rescue orange, every time it gets a little better I drop a frag on it, eek!


My purple rim, still only expands at night

here are some actinic shots - t5s on an IC660. no editing cos i'm too lazy...some top down, some head on. Fungia, cycloseris, diaseris, lithophyllion, herpolitha, halomitra/sandalolitha, and polyphyllia. i want to convert the tank into a lagoon tank with fungias, chalices, duncans, garden eels & curious wormfish eventually.
