  1. The THINK Tank
    As I have been gone for a few years, just set up another tank, and have recently been thinking of my good friend Tom, I'd like to bring up a topic he and I discussed long ago, but never received a satisfactory answer to. Anyone who is a diver knows that colors/wavelengths are filtered out of...

    Which colors of light found in the PAR spectrum best support zooxanthellae? In what ratios? The purpose of this thread is to host a discussion in which we will share knowledge about zooxanthellae and the conditions best for its growth and development (with an emphasis on PUR). For a...
