That really is freaky. I have had Corals before and I know some of them are good at protecting themselves. I had one set of ricordia with mushrooms and it (ricordia) melted the mushroom a day later :o Corals are animals and should be treated with respect and care :)

Wow!  Someone has discovered an animal that produces spores.  :Dont-Believe:  Not.   Some zoanthids, soft corals, produce a nasty toxin, which they can squirt into the water.  If they get removed from the water, or the water gets removed, they can squirt it into the air.   Then people can inhale it and get sick.   i can't imagine how how anyone came up with the idea of airborne "spores".

True, animals don't make spores. I totally missed that weird wording :lol:
