HUH?!?!?!?!?

I was surfing the web, and I found this: http://www.reeftank.com/photopost/sh...cat=all&page=1

Is this pom pom really letting out eggs? How will the eggs get fertilized? Is mine going to do that??

If the conditions are right nearly every coral we keep will do this. This is sexual method of reproduction for the corals. As you know the division method that we experence most often is the asexual method.

When this occurs it usually happens all over the reef. There will be a release of eggs and a release of sperm. These eggs and sperm will meet in the water column and be carried away by the currents.

In our tanks our fish and inverts consume all the eggs and sperm should this event even occur.

Hmm... Well, my capnella tree was closed for a while, and I thought there was airbubbles on the polyps, so they might actually have been eggs? Will there have to be two xenia one for eggs and other for fertilization, or does one do both???
