    I am not going to take my chances. I still find higher sps survival rates of control temperature below 28 degc.

    Then why do they attribute reef bleaching to global warming?

    Bleaching of corals has Many reasons not just temp. Temp Raise is just one reason that’s effecting Corlas in conjunction to increased UV, pollutants, and also Low nutrients due to absence of fish because of some of above reasons etc.

    In SEA temps are much higher in ocean than Australian reefs and corals are still able to thrive, one reasons could be they are getting enough nutrients in the murky waters with plenty of vegetation and right about of lighting unlike some parts of Australia where bleaching is prominent.

    I had sps surviving and growing at high nutrients of 50 and without chiller at fluctuating aircon temps, yes they may not Color up well but still they survive and never bleached.

    When I lowered my nutrients to almost less than 5 with slight changes in water stability they got into RTN and STN in few weeks. ( RTN& STN is debatable but eat the end it’s loss of coral for some reason that Aussie sps might also been facing )

    Hope this helps you to understand some reasons for coral bleaching
