The coral grows very fast, within 3 weeks they started to overgrown the cable tie. They did very well.

Along the dive we did revisit our Giant clam nearby the Anaise reef which before the tissue been covered by piece of rubbles and half of the giant clam tissues become bleach because the zooxanthellae (which gives the giant clam colour) feels stress and expelled out. After 3 weeks, the tissue starts to recover. Get well soon dear Giant Clam!
