Fluorescent Coral Pictures Showing An Amazing Diversity of Colors

Top Right Solid Corner

Corals show an amazing diversity of colors most of which are visible in daylight, but the fluorescent colors are only visible with black light in the dark. The corals fluoresce all the time, but sunlight is so bright that it is not possible to see the fluorescence. Corals are suffering from coral bleaching due to global warming, and fluorescense may be important in reducing the bleaching.

Corals get most of their nutrients from zooxanthallae, which are a symbiotic algae living within the coral polyp. However they can also catch plankton using the stinging cells on their tentacles. Corals breed by spawning releasing gametes simultaneously over a period of several nights, usually around the time of a full moon.
