Yay, exciting, I wonder if we could do the same.... would need a skimmer less tank though, but how cool would that be.
sadly i would think rearing the larvae would be near impossible in your every day aquarium. they most likely need the currents and "primordial soup" that is plankton to survive the initial stages of development. still a tiny tiny tiny beacon of hope none the less
"We use purified London tap water and are miles from reef but we managed to trick them using LED lighting and microprocessors."
LED's was it? I remember when people were bashing LED's saying they won't grow coral, etc.
Oh Wait- they still are!
Oh yea, LED's WITH microprocessors? Where can I get those.
I like this part- purified London Tap water! He He, ROTFL
Maybe salt water from a mix, made with...........wait for it................London tap water- oh yea, purified.
I'm sorry to be so sarcastic, but come on, could they have more been any more lay when explaining the spawning in lab conditions.
It's hard to believe that this in the first time they captured it in lab conditions?
I had always felt it would not be too difficult to get this in the lab reproducing the lunar cycles, length of daylight, etc.
Oh wait, I almost forgot- they really just neede the old yankee purified London tap water
I'm holding my breath on this one, ready - go - still holding it............
Next, they'll be cloning humans ;-)
hahaha I agree its written in a rather dubious manner, but there have been cases of corals spawning in captivity. I believe a member of this very forum had it happen to him.
either rearing the larvae would be the real challenge
