  2. I honestly think anything that is free of bugs. I am going to throw in some montipora, along with some faster growing SPS.

    Oh, and that's the thing. Fast growing would probably benefit them.

    There are a lot of isolated tanks that they tend to do experiments in. No animals are harmed in the process, but if you imagine a student wants to do 10 trials of different pH's....then they need to grow fast enough to supply the students.

    So anything that grows at a good pace and is somewhat hardy. 

     


  3. Hey everyone,

    I went back to the Evergreen State College (my undergraduate) for a visit and they installed a huge 13,000 liter system aquarium system in the basement of the school. One thing I thought they always did well was teach the sciences and this provides a way for the students to both monitor and have a hands-on experience with these living creatures.

    Although, when I visited, they were looking for more variety of corals and it made me think it would be good to ask the club.

    Personally, I have some euphyllia, birdsnest, xooanthids, and pavona that I am going to donate. I haven't heard of anything they don't want.

    So, please let me know if you have any corals that you would be willing to donate for educational purposes. I'll likely be heading up in December, so no rush. 

    Thanks again,

    Miles
