    New Forum Azoox.org Embraces the Dark

    Azoox.org is a new forum dedicated to the care of azooxanthellate, or non-photosynthetic, corals. Azoox has a great team behind it and is already showing signs of what a modern forum should be about–knowledge sharing.

    Azoox.org is a new forum dedicated to the care of azooxanthellate, or non-photosynthetic, corals. Azoox has a great team behind it and is already showing signs of what a modern forum should be about–knowledge sharing.

    Most recently IT guru Shane Garber (liquid) implemented api.embed.ly to allow direct embedding of videos, photos, documents and even tweets. [See an example here]. As other forum operators see this we’re sure it will become a popular feature.

    Azoox describes their goals:

    Non-photosynthetic corals (NPS) have long been of interest to reefkeepers, but they have also traditionally been difficult to keep. With recent innovations and understandings about what these corals actually need to thrive in captive environments, it is time for a focused community to bring together all NPS information, research and collaboration. Azoox.org is that community.

    Our forums are dedicated to to sharing information on NPS corals at all levels, from the beginner to the researcher, in an open and friendly community. We hope you join our community.

      I have had various levels of success with non-photosynthetic corals in the past. It is good to see a move to create a centralized knowledge-base.
