Cucumber Research

Good find.  I like the straight forwardness of this paragraph.

We learned this by either removing sea cucumbers from certain sand patches, while leaving them in others, or by caging corals with and without sea cucumbers inside the cages. In both experiments, corals near sea cucumbers were strikingly less likely to become diseased and die.

Here is a new biological variable Eli can work in to studies on those benthic bacteria!  Do you use UV, ozone, or cucumbers?




That's really interesting. It is probably because they sift the sand for food and remove pathogenic bacteria from the sand while they feed. The problem is when they get caught in a powerhead and their toxic guts get broadcast into the tank.
