    I am doing research on accelerated coral growth for aquaculture at the 
University of Maine. I'm looking for some accurate but simple methods to measure 
the growth of Acropora and Stylophora nubbins. I am considering mounting them 
on tiles and measuring vertical growth with digital calipers. We don't have a 
scale we can alter for the buoyant weight technique. This is for a master's 
thesis so, it has to be a fairly sound method. Growth period is expected to 
last for 2 months so, I expect there to be fairly significant growth.
