    Bruce, I have the same problem. I've actually had people ask to buy my scrapings off my PH.

    Just a guess but i think it's the lighting. Good Levels and PC lighting seems to make coraline go nuts.
    Since I've switched to MH lights, things have slowed down and now it's manageable.

    Good luck
