This report describes how Montastraea cavernosa colonies responded to amoxicillin treatments versus chlorinated epoxy in southeast Florida in a short timeframe (2 months). Based on the success, this information was used to decide which treatment option to apply on the M. cavernosa corals in the broader-scale disease intervention efforts. The broader-scale efforts continued through June 2019 and were conducted in partnership with FAU, DEP, Broward County and Miami-Dade County.
