    How do chalice corals grow? Are they encrusting or more like a monti cap? I see from 3/4' frags that they look like they are encrusting - do they reach a point where they lift off and grow differently? Does anyone have pictures of a chalice coral that has growth quite big? Or bigger than a small frag?

    yeah they encrust, they actually grow differently depending on how they are positioned... if you have them flat I believe they tend to plate, if they are vertical (on side) they encrust.
