This fact could possibly be a part of the problem.
Diatoms are a major nutrient competitor and they need silicate.

I also found out carbon does not bind well to iron. (and alcohol)
A few posts back I mention the opposite.

Palytoxins produced by Ostreopsis are very long carbon chains.
Based on the above I wonder if it's the carbon or the GFO that take up the toxins.

Yet another bit of knowledge about this toxin is that it causes bone resorption, by breaking down bone and releasing the elements. Bones are mostly calcium and so are our corals.
