    The Netflix documentary "Chasing Coral" will be released next week. A friend of mine (who also happens to dive) saw this a few months ago at the Sundance film festival and said it was really good.

    Remind me again when it's actually released. I don't want to miss it.

    Yeah and do your research before you go, last thing you want to do is be on the North coast and then have them tell you you need to go to 400 miles to the south to see any live corals

    Just watched it. Very well shot and presented. Also very depressing but in an informative way.

    I was surprised to learn that 26% of corals died on the Great Barrier Reef in 2016 alone! I don't know how they came up with that number but it is a LARGE %!

    The time lapse photos at the end were very sad to see.

    Ya. I watched over the weekend too. Didn't know temp play a big role. No wonder my corals doesn't do very well during summer.

    I didn't during my first tank. It was reaching close to 90 i believe. Hot temp + algae made me quit the hobby for about a year ;P. I had no knowledge back then.

    I am using clip on fans now. Those help me maintain between 80 during heat wave. I can't use chiller because I live in an apartment and there is no place install it.

    Opps, sorry. Between 80 - 83 according to Apex. Normally, I keep my tank at 77.

    Peter and I watched it last night. A real eye opener. I wonder that as the oceans are warming and we lose long established coral reefs, new reefs will begin to slowly grow in places where the water was a couple degrees too cold previously?

    So the reefs would start moving north n south away from the tropical ranges towards the temperate areas?

    Would be cool if California had reefs off our coast!

    Wouldn't be in our life time though and hopefully there would be enough time for the corals to adapt.
