U.K. Scientists Spawn and Settle Scolys!
Still known to many aquarium hobbyists simply as Scolies or Scolys due to their former placement in the genus Scolymia, the captive-breeding of this highly-prized large polyp stony coral from Australia was once simply a daydream. It’s time to wake up and face a new reality with the first successful captive propagation of Homophyllia australis.

Sandhi 善迪 says:Amazing spot. I love this part of knowledge: "Every small, free square inch is quickly occupied by Xeniidae corals. But, they seem to serve a very important function, preparing the substrate, and binding every piece of coral rubble together so sponges and coralline algae can finish the job by cementing everything up. Thus, later, coral larvae can settle on this newly stabilized real estate." Thank you, Vincent

Jon Gordon says:Please sign this to support common sense rules in Florida. Ask Fish and Wildlife not to use an ill-advised whitelist of animals that can be kept. All you need to do is add your name to the following statement, "A viable option I support would be a list of prohibited species, which would be a much smaller, manageable and enforceable list than one that attempts to encompass all allowed species.

Bryce David says:To whom it may concern, A whitelist approach to regulating which species are legally allowed to be obtained and traded will decimate fish farms and pet stores. This is not a well thought out approach for combating invasive species release into ecosystems. Best Management Practices have already made inroads on preventing the release of foreign invader species. I suggest a review of those practices and amend them if they are deemed to be insufficient. Sincerely, Bryce David

However , I feel that this bill is over reaching and will have a negative impact not only On the industry , but to Florida’s economy.
