Last night all three sibling species of Montastraea "annularis" spawned on a 
reef in Biscayne National Park from 9:30 pm (M. franksi) to 10:30 to 11:30 
pm (M. annularis and faveolata).  Heavy spawning was observed but not all 
colonies spawned.  The one colony of Acropora palmata on this reef did not 
spawn.  No other species were observed to spawn.  We'd like to hear from 
other observers!!  We plan to be out there again tonight.
