[I][B]~dedicated to McKibben, because he noticed.[/B][/I]

I went out to dinner the other night. I know, that doesn't sound very spectacular, but it happened to be one of my favorite restaurants, and I know the menu by heart, so it was surprising to find enlightenment there...someplace so common and familiar.

First of all, the company with me was completely different from who I usually go out to dinner with. Secondly, the menu had changed. So here I was, sitting and...

Desjardini tang died shortly after that last post. I did some research on the net, and felt that there was a fluke infection in the tank in addition to the ick. I got a couple bottles of PraziPro, turned off the skimmer and added them to the tank. About five days later, the rabbitfish started to look better. Now the rabbit is back to full color and normal behavior. There is a little bit of what looks like an abrasion on his left eye, which probably started the infection there, but he has done...

Coral Carbon Crisis part 3

Posted 09/06/2010 at 11:39 AM by Mmckibben

Start At part one!

Interpretation of Data

According to the data given corals began to show signs of stress at a pH of 7.9, and SPS corals begin to die at 7.6. Over all the average plankton per drop went up by about 10% by the end of the experiment. It can be assumed this is happening because the coral polyps were small, and didnít consume as much plankton. The theory is that when the coral polyps are small, and unhealthy, they have a smaller surface area to...

This is the science fair prodject I did last year. I sorry I'f my graphs don't show up for you. I have to split it into three blogs since It's so long.


What is the effect of carbonic acid on the reef ecosystem? The Hypothesis was When the average ph of a coral reef (8.1) drops by .1 every 4 days for 24 days, the following corals are predicted to begin the dieing process at these ph levels: SPS at 7.65, LPS at 7.6, but soft corals won’t die...
