'Time-lasped' video of a Plate Coral feeding

I stumbled across a fascinating, sped-up video of a Plate Coral (likely Fungia sp.) feeding on pellet food. Watch as the pellets are moved by the coral from the outer tentacles to the central mouth where they are ultimately consumed.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
