    How much longer do you think you're plate will stay attached? I think mine separated once it was about the size of the plug but I could be wrong.

    It's grown out of a small stem, smaller than 1/8". I wasn't sure what this was when it was tiny. I later assume it is a plate because it looks like a plate but not sure why this one has a 'stem', compared to the ones I bought that didn't have the stems. You think it will break itself out of that? I have no idea. But the stem is quite small and fragile so you might be right, it might not be able to support the whole thing when the plate gets too big, and it will easily break off. ... Then I will have more plates?? :eek::D:D:D

    Ya they have the stem to keep on the reef until large enough to make a go of it.

    I'd like to first thank my parents, who always believed in me, even after that one high school incident...;)

    Seriously though, thanks TCMAS and Ryan! Winner by default, but I'll take it with only slight shame
