Torch coral spawning?

Recommended Posts

Is my torch coral spawning?  I noticed it discharging a stream of cloudy water, so I turned off my powerheads to get a better look.  Check out this video:

These little eruptions confused me for a long time until I saw what was actually doing it.  In my tanks case it's usually a bristle worm that has emerged under or inbetween the coral heads and is spewing it's reproductive stuff into the water column.  Plenty of corals reproduce sexually too though so maybe it is the torch!

Very cool! Looks like spawning.

I’ve had bristle stars produce an excretion like that too.
