Sebastian collected eggs and sperm from coral colonies during the annual coral spawning event and is raising the resulting larvae in the white containers. He's providing different levels of carbon dioxide to different batches, simulating current and predicted future levels. He will measure survivorship, settlement and rate of early colony formation.
