Algal expulsion event from a live larva. (A) Time-lapse imaging sequence showing clear evidence of an algal expulsion event from the larval mouth through the gastric cavity (white arrow, 95 minutes). (B) Mean measured fluorescent intensity (photon counts) for a equal-size region of interest within (top panel) and external to (bottom panel) Aiptasia boundaries (sum intensity across the z-projection of the z-stack for each timepoint). Fluorescence within Aiptasia decreases by about one third at the same frame that expelled algae are visible outside the larval body.
