Hi all coral listrers,
Does anyone knows if there is mucus secretion (or something similar to 
mucus) from the ectodermal epithelium layer of corals? (meaning the 
calicoblastic ectodermis, close to the skeleton), and/ or any 
microorganisms associated with this microlayer of the corals?
Are there any publications or work done about this?
I appreciate any advice and help , and thank you in advance,
