I'm successfully propagating various stony corals for use in our reef 
exhibits.   I'm getting ready to start up a greenhouse system and am 
interested in avoiding a bleaching event due to elevated temperatures. 
Anecdotal reports of maximum acceptable temperatures vary considerably. 
I normally avoid temperatures above 26 C, but believe I'm acting 

I'd appreciate receiving actual observed critical temperatures from 
various parts of the world.
