How much coral does it take to make a coral reef?

    It actually only takes one single coral polyp to create a coral reef. Many corals produce asexually and produce million of polyps, which drift into the sea. If just one grabs hold of a rock or the sand, a new reef can form. However, these polyps usually end up dying, or, if they do manage to start to grow, tend to do so on existing reefs, however they always could start an entirely new reef.
