Search behaviour by dactylozooids likely serves a defensive function. M. complanata responded positively to the presence of crushed and live brine shrimp with vigorous feeding responses (de Kruijf and de Kruijf, 1980). Weak responses were elicited by 2 of 22 amino acids tested, L-asparagine and L-leucine, and by reduced glutathione.

Diseases The first reports of symptomatic diseases of scleractinian corals, millepores and gorgonians appeared in the 1970s on reefs oV Belize, Bermuda and in the Caribbean (Garrett and Ducklow, 1975; Antonius, 1977). These are generally known as ‘‘band diseases’’: black band disease, white band disease and yellow blotch disease. Most band diseases have been associated with microorganisms that contribute to the development of lesions and loss of bands or strips of coral tissue. Black band disease has been documented on millepores (Ru¨tzler and Santavy, 1983; Santavy and Peters, 1997) but does not appear to be widespread.
