Good point Innovator... forgot about that one. Soft corals (leathers, octocorals, mushrooms, etc) can tend to do their warfare through chemicals in the water (aleopathically) versus stinging tentacles. A bunch of soft corals in a tank can lead to problems down the road which are hard to figure out. You just don't know who is fighting who since you can't see the chemicals. Good reason to always run carbon in any mixed reef in order to suck up the toxins.

Basically the chemical warfare of certain corals (I suppose). I've only really heard allelopathy in reference to plants....

Couldn't resist adding to the 'nolige' base

Allelopathy is the inhibition of growth of a plant due to biomolecules released by another. It is the opposite of symbiotic mutualism. The biomolecules are called allelochemicals and are produced by some plants as secondary metabolites. When the allelochemicals are released into the environment, they inhibit the development of neighbouring plants.

I assume the post expands the definition to include non plant species can excrete chemicals that will inhibit neighbors from being able to utilize compounds necessary for existence?
