Hi All,
    Last night (Aug 11, 2009) we had a partial spawn of M. faveolata at 
Cheeca Rocks, Middle Keys.  Of the 15 colonies that we tented, 8 
released some egg-sperm bundles.  Spawning started at about 11:30 pm and 
continued in small amounts until about midnight.  We are hoping for a 
major spawn tonight.  Follow our adventures on the Burr Coral spawning
