This series of books contain a lot of information. The MRCA have lots of

experimental model where you need to consider a lot of parameters and
variables affecting the entire experiment.

Hope this help.

> Hi Everyone
> Please can anyone help me on "How to set up a coral tank" in as less
technical jargon as possible. I have to set up an experiment on measuring
fluorescence from coral zooanthellae so if any one has any info on measuring
fluorescence using a P.A.M I would be very grateful
