Just saw this on advanced hobbyist.

http://www.advancedaquarist.com/blog/feeding-acropora-helps-them-handle-elevated-temperatures-and-co2

I hate to say it but if this is the case then I really need to bump up the filtration of ALL my tanks, to feed all the different corals every day would mean bigger skimmers and more nutrient export.

I suppose I can find comfort in the fact that I myself and many other people do not directly feed their acropora daily directly and have beautifully successful reefs.

And although it is not acropora I thought this was an interesting article about Stylophora feeding producing hydrogen peroxide.

Now I want to get a colony of rotifers again, for more reasons than this, but it is certainly a reminder.
