Is there any evidence that RTN is actually a secondary infection (possibly
by Vibrio sp. bacteria) and not a primary disease but that the onset may be
due to massive attacks  by Vibrio organisms because a small polyp coral
(e.g Acropora sp.) is stressed and may suffer from nutritional or other
deficiency ?
