What does coral reefs need in to grow?
all coral reefs need salt to live.
Coral Reefs need carbon dioxide and sunlight to grow. As well as the ocean water, of course!
Yes, algae does grow on coral reefs it is actually a big contributor to the coral reefs. :)
the coral reefs need fishes to survive. the fishes help the coral reefs survive and the fishes get a home
yes, coral reefs do grow well in high levels of oxygen.
crustaceons form coral reefs and they grow in shallow water.
Coral reefs are a diverse habitat for marine life.
Coral reefs grow in warm temperate water
The Arctic Ocean is too cold for coral reefs. The coral reefs cannot grow under cold conditions. They can only grow in waters between the arctic circle and the equator. They must grow under neutral tepurature water. Even if they are too hot they can't grow.
Correct, they need the warm waters of the tropics to grow successfully.
To survive, coral reefs need algae, sunlight, clear clean water, warm temperatures, and saltwater. The sunlight helps the algae grow. Coral is sensitive to dirty, cold, and polluted waters and function best when the water is clean and warm.
Antarctica is a continent, and coral reefs grow in salt water. The Southern Ocean that surrounds Antarctica is not warm enough for coral reefs.
Coral reefs get quite a bit of sun. Coral reefs grow close to the surface of the ocean. They are in the sunlit zone of the ocean, you can often find many brightly colored fish in coral reefs.
Coral reefs are important to humans because coral reefs are a part of the circle of life and we are a part to so we need them for many things.
Dolphins live near coral reefs, but not in them. They prefer living more out in the open and don't need the cover of the reefs.
no they dont
you need to care for coral reefs because all kinds of animals live in the reefs and if the touch them you will get shocked. It takes along time to grow them back. If you go and see the coral reef it is so color full, green, red, blue, yellow. there apart of our wild life in the water.
The coral reefs are mostly able to grow in clay like material that keeps the coral stable. They just need sand for certain corals and other grow on solid rock surfaces. It just depends if the coral is a Small polyp stoney corals or a large polyp stony or some other kind of soft coral.
Coral reefs-rainforests of the sea 1. Only 1% of the world oceans are taken up by coral reefs. 2. Coral reefs are important because they provide a home for ¼ of the world marine life, they protect the coast from erosion, are a source of food for the worlds growing population, contains medicines and antidotes and are a major tourist attraction. 3. ¼ per cent of the world's marine life lives in coral reef. 4… Read More
No its a plant. Umm... the above answer is not true. Coral Reef is a biome = = Oh yes and if you were talking about the stuff that grow in coral reefs, they are made of many coral polyps which are very tiny animals.
Most of the reef building corals and animals on a reef are dependant on high amounts of sunlight; thus coral reefs are restricted to the tropics where sunlight is abundant. There are deep water sponge reefs in temperate and artic regions, but they are much different from coral reefs.
Most coral reefs are in the more shallow water. Though there are some in the deep water also. It depends on the types of corals being grown how deep they will grow.
Coral reefs do not only grow in colder waters. The world's largest coral reef, the Great Barrier Reef, extends through the sub-tropical and tropical waters off the coast of Queensland, Australia.
English Answer: Coral reefs are made of a living layer of coral on top of the skeletons of previous generations. So they are primarily made of non living coral But they are referred to living reefs as they continue to grow and live.
Coral reefs grow best when they have enough carbon dioxide, clean shallow ocean water that isn't too cold, and enough sunlight to provide the energy they need for survival.
Yes, it is possible, you need a salt water tank and let it sit and make sure it is in sunlight. Check out more information about coral reefs at destructionofcoralreefs.weebly.com
There are no coral reefs in California.
no dolphins are not in coral reefs.

There are some rocks in the coral reefs but mostly living coral organisms. Rocks tend to sit at the bottom of the reefs. But reefs are not made of rocks, but are made of coral. :)

The Coral Reefs predator is starfish.
No there is not caves in coral reefs you dummie
The reason they are called Coral Reef is because there are lots of coral in those locations, and they are also called coral reefs or reefs of coral reefs of coral too.
The agitation clears away sediment, which can block the light that is required for the photosynethic algae to grow on coral reefs. The removal of sedimentation also enables them to properly respirate, otherwise the tiny coral polyps could suffocate. The water where coral reef's flourish also lack many nutrients, which is why it is clear. The waves (agitation) help deliver nutrients to animals, like sponges, that have a symbiotic relationship with the coral reef.
Reefs attract fish (whether they are natural coral reefs or artificial reefs).
fijians grow artificial corals for trade
Coral reefs are made by Coral polyps which eats zoo plankton
There are many fish in coral reefs
there are about 735 species of coral reefs in the world
No, but the reefs are built by coral polyps, which are animals.
are coral reefs can be gas of ships?
Coral reefs are being killed by pollutants.
Coral reefs are an ecosystem that are both beautiful and diverse. Coral reefs are fragile because of their sensitivity to temperature change.
Most coral reefs are located in Australia. Other countries with coral reefs include Belize and the United States (Hawaii). The Red Sea also has coral reefs.
No, coral reefs are cnidarians. The reefs themselves are built by coral polyps. Coral reefs are considered cnidarians along with what you and I would commonly refer to as jellyfish. Sea anemones are also cnidarians.
Seagrass has adapted to living in habitats behind the coral reefs (back reefs) where they trap sediments from overloading coral reefs. Seagrass provides transferable food and oxygen to the coral reefs.
they help build coral reefs by speading their waist along the sealine to help build coral reefs.
Coral Reefs are made up of Polyp Skeletons , You can find Coral Reefs in Hawaii , Bahamas, Red sea , ect.
They need clean, shallow water that's no colder than 68 degrees Fahrenheit.
