Feature Article: Coral growth under Light Emitting Diode and Light Emitting Plasma: a cross-family comparison

By Tim Wijgerde, Michaƫl Laterveer on Feb 06, 2013 at 11:00 AM

With the advent of new technology, aquarists are able to customize light spectra with great flexibility. However, our knowledge of how light spectrum affects aquarium life, including corals, is still limited. Here, we show the effects of two light spectra, emitted by Light Emitting Diode (LED) and Light Emitting Plasma (LEP), on the growth of ten commercially important scleractinian corals. It appears that the effect of spectrum is highly species dependent, and that most efficient coral growth is invariably attained at low irradiance. The results from this study can be used to optimize sustainable coral aquaculture.

Aquarium Corals: Feeding and oxygen affect coral growth: implications for coral aquaculture

By Tim Wijgerde on Dec 26, 2012 at 11:00 AM

It is common knowledge that many coral species depend on their symbiotic zooxanthellae to survive. Their alliance with these dinoflagellates has allowed corals to build vast underwater structures known as coral reefs, in an environment that seems almost devoid of nutrients. Research has shown that, in addition to energy gained from photosynthesis, plankton constitutes an important source of nutrients for corals. Although zooplankton supplementation may significantly enhance their growth, new findings suggest that corals are best fed when the aquarium lights are on.

Feature Article: Epizoic flatworms impair coral feeding: evidence for parasitism

By Tim Wijgerde on Nov 07, 2012 at 10:00 AM

Flatworms are well-known in the aquarium hobby and research community. Both in the wild and in captivity, they hide between the tentacles of many corals. Despite their common appearance in aquaria, the nature of the symbiosis between corals and flatworms has long been unclear. New evidence strongly suggests that epizoic acoelomorph flatworms are parasitic. Next to suffocating coral tissue and feeding on coral mucus, flatworms have now been found to impair coral feeding.
