Live Corals are small sea anemones (Like polyps) that live in colonies. These are what reefs are made from. The coral secrete a calcium carbonate to form a hard skeleton. Each coral (called a head) is made up of many identical organisms each really tiny in size of maybe a few millimeters. The coral head will breed with other corals similar in type. Each tiny organism will spawn at the same time. This usually happens during a full moon.
Corals eat by catching plankton with their stinging tentacles and by absorbing the algae around them. In fact this algae is their main diet so in order for the algae to live it needs sunlight to grow so the coral won't live below 200 (60m) feet beneath the surface of the water and stay in more shallow depths. Some coral don't depend on alga and can live in deeper water.
Coral reefs provide many benefits including fish and octopus that are harvested for food. They also furnish recreational advantages for scuba diving and snorkeling. Coral reefs are great tourist attractions but a balance has to be maintained to protect these valuable reefs from being harmed by all the activity
The live coral in the aquarium is extremely popular as they add beauty to your tank. Before adding them to your saltwater tank be sure to do the research to understand how to keep your coral alive. Corals can be difficult to maintain and without the proper understanding of how they live your coral will die.

Dear Live Coral Fans,
I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.
In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
