I have these two since 10 years. They came attached to a piece of live rock. They were tiny at the time, maybe 1cm diameter.

But are they fungias?

They take a good amount of space and I was thinking about selling one of them.

Yes these are fungia plates.
Never seen a fungia plate with 3 mouths before. You have something unique going on there!

are you sure they aren't lithophyllon? Mine looks like a green fungia with multiple mouths. Came in on a piece of live rock as a hitchhiker and it encrusts the rock.

It's difficult to know.

The one with just 1 mouth looks like a typical fungia.

The 3 mouths were there right from the start, when it was just 1 cm and attached to the rock.

They move around and on occasion inflate a lot, in sync.

okay moving around eliminates lithophyllon; they are stationary
