    Coral Algae (Symbiodinium) Discovered in Black Corals at Never Seen Before Depths


    ScienceDaily (Oct. 20, 2010) Researchers at the Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB), an organized research unit in the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa's School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology, have made remarkable new findings of deep-water black corals.
    When most people envision coral, they typically think of shallow-water reef-building corals found along beaches and tropical nearshore habitats. These "typical" corals are dependent upon photosynthetic algae (also known as Symbiodinium or zooxanthellae) found in their tissues to obtain nutrients to live off of.
    In deeper less known waters, closely related black corals were considered to be void of these algae because of the light shortage to support photosynthesis. In fact, all black corals were considered to lack Symbiodinium (algae), because they are typically found at great depths where light levels are very low.

    If we ignore the environment
    maybe it will just go away....

    An explosion can be defined as a loud noise, accompanied by the sudden going away of things, from a place where they use to be.

    No no it was that fellow with the 18 inch sand bed. It was a while ago, Ole Blue eyes put him in charge of that study, I remember we all thought it was like getting sent to Syberia, lol

    "Ole Blue eyes"

    Do you mean by that name Charles Delbeek. He is no longer in Hi, and is running that new, just opened last year, monster 200,000 gal reef tank at the new 1/2 billion dollar CAS and Steinhart Aquarium, which was even a National Geographic two part special. I do lots of stuff for them there.

    No it was Charlie that put the guy on the study. I know Charles it at stienhart, he spent a weekend at my place before he went down to. Which reminds me that I owe him a nasty!!! He booby trapped me with a horny Octopus at the Seattle Aquarium it took me a week to get all that snot off me.
