We collected spawn from one large colony, only 10 % of that colony spawned.  No other colony in our part of the reef was seen to form bundles (we stopped checked ca. 9:45 pm) but the Baums group got spawn from a different part of the reef a few hundred meters south.  We are hoping that tonight will bring a larger spawn.
