There was a great paper published by Roger Steele and Nora Goreau in 1977 that
discusses "farming of the alga". Here is the citation.

Steele, R.D. and N. Goreau, (1977). The breakdown of symbiotic zooxanthellae in
the sea anemone Phyllactis (=Oulactis) flosculifera (Actiniara). J. Zool. Lond.
181: 421-437.

Quoting Melissa Keyes <mekvinga at yahoo.com>:

* Hello, Listers,
*   Do stressed Polyps eject their Zooxanthellae because the Zoox are dying or
* have died, and are beginning to rot?
