What do coral reefs need to grow?



  1. 0 Votes

    Coral Reefs include sunlight, warm water, and clear, shallow waters. Coral doesn’t grow in waters under 68 degrees Fahrenheit. In murky waters, photosynthesis can’t take place, allowing it to store energy that it gets from sugar and starches.

    Coral reefs grow in clear, shallow, temperate and tropical saltwater (no colder than 68 degrees F) and are made from calcium carbinate from polyps and skeletal matter. The clear, warm water is necessary for photosynthesis to occur. Zooxanthellae algea and polyps use photosynthesis to get their energy and other animals eat them.
