My question, as hinted at in the title, is:
Most of us have seen the famous picture depicting a bioluminescent red tide shown here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dinoflagellates [scroll down]. What I'm curious about is whether or not a specifically-cultivated aquarium [devoid of other life and fed only with nutrients, phosphorous etc] could, with the right algae culture, produce a colony of dinoflagellates that could be prompted into bioluminescent displays?
If so, what are the constraints -- particular species of algae, uncertain triggers for the spectacle, etc?
