Coral reefs are usually located in clear
tropical waters. Coral reefs are at least 150
ft. under water but to be formed they have to

this is algae (the enemy of coral) grows
faster than coral .To make a coral reef you
have to have coral . The way you make coral

are a lot of plants in the coral reef.
