Coral fans are blocks that can only be placed underwater, on the 4 sides of blocks: north, south, west, east. They can also be placed on top of blocks.[Bedrock Edition only] Like coral blocks, they come in five variants.

Dead coral fans are variants of coral that comes in the same five variants as the other types.[Bedrock Edition only]


Coral fans and their dead variants can be instantly mined and will always drop themselves.

Coral fans naturally generate in coral reef structures in all editions, while dead coral fans only generate in Bedrock Edition.

May 21, 2009 Notch expresses interest in a suggestion regarding corals by user "solarblade".
June 28, 2010 Notch mentioned on his blog: "I tried adding corals, but it’s really hard to draw a single block that looks like corals, since it’s really more about crazy amounts of variation and diversity. But I do know that the corals will have tiny fish particles around them."
Official release
