I have had coral spawn in my tank and did nothing about it and have not had any problems. DT had her GSP spawn and I don't think she did anything about it. How large is the mat?

I'd just let em float away. That's all I did. A few members on here have had their GSP's spawn, nothing bad happens from it.

thank you much for the quick responses. Zig, the mat is probably 15" x 15", but only the central polyps seem to be part of the spectacle. I would guess-timate that about an 1/8 of the polyps are involved. devilish, thanks for the good news, i guess i can just sit back and enjoy?! . . . oh yeah, i'm working on some pix and a small video snip, don't know how either will turn out but i'll do my best.

Very neat! Watch for any signs of stress. It could possibly trigger a mini-cycle and produce some ammonia/nitrite. It depends on how much was released, bio-filter, etc. I'd also recommend doing a PWC tomorrow to bring the nutrients down, and running some GAC would be a good idea as well.

the least i could do . . . btw, doe anyone know if this will happen on a regular basis? will the gametes provide food for any tank inhabitants? and finally the most important question from this humble reefer, does this come with any bragging rights?
