> Dear coral listers,
> I have a student project that is surprising to me this year. I
> have a 120 gallon aquarium with cultured live rock in it from
> Florida. It has been established for over 5 years and has been a
> great aquarium. Several small colonies of what I believe are
> Porites branneri are growing on new pieces of live rock and reef
> plugs throughout the aquarium. I haven't had much experience
> with corals sexually reproducing within an aquarium before and
> was wondering if anyone had any similar experiences with this
> coral within aquariums or any knowledge of this coral within the
> Caribbean. 
> Here is the link to the student project on it:
> http://fc.lovett.org/%7Eddalke/Projects_07/TANK_120/Proposal.html
> and also their current picture page:
> http://fc.lovett.org/%7Eddalke/Projects_07/TANK_120/Pictures.html
> Any information about this coral and your thoughts on their
> project would be greatly appreciated.
