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.

Generation[edit]

Coral reefs generate throughout warm ocean biomes (though not deep warm oceans), densely covering the sea floor. Coral reefs generate at constant elevation y level. Although they can generate at underwater ravine floor, lowering ocean floor will cause coral reef to not be generated.

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]

Structure[edit]

A coral reef consists of a few clusters of coral blocks, each of a particular type. Sometimes, these clusters are dead coral blocks.‌[Bedrock Edition only]

Coral reefs are usually topped with coral, and sometimes coral fans and sea pickles. The coral and coral fans are not necessarily the same type of coral as their support blocks; in fact there are often multiple types on the same reef. In Bedrock Edition, coral reefs occasionally include dead coral fans.
