Thanks Cal for the link to the article. Extremely interesting discovery. Kudos to chief scientist Ove Hoegh-Guldberg and his team from the University of Queensland's Seaview Survey. Read and noted.

Wow! I didn't think it possible for corals(specifically) to survive or thrive without sunlight. It has always been my understanding that the microorganisms that digest their food were photosynthetic microbes(need sunlight).
