Coral reefs are structures that generate in warm ocean biomes. They consist of multiple clusters of coral blocks, coral and coral fans. These clusters come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and colors, ranging from a few blocks of brain coral on the ground to large tree-like structures of fire coral.


Players can manually load every piece of coral reef structure using structure block in folder coralcrust, example: coralcrust/outcropping1 will load one of coral reef variant structure.‌[Bedrock Edition only]
