The seas are pink with Coral spawn

As crazy as this sounds, aren’t you glad you are not combating this within your aquarium right now?

The annual mass spawning of corals on the Palau archipelago in the western Pacific has occurred right on cue.

With Sunday night’s full moon, coral polyps let forth a huge swathe of sperm and egg, to seed the next generation.

The event was short-lived – only about 30 minutes – but so vast in its scale that it turned the sea water pink.

Read the rest in the article over at BBC. There are pictures and video along with the story. Quite an interesting incident.
