Feeding from the sun

Sarcophyton soft corals festoon the shallow part of the reef. As most corals can produce the bulk of their own food by photosynthesis, they can survive in areas that have little or no nutrients in the water. It also means that they need sunlight and hence clear water. Ths makes them an ideal underwater photography subject!
