Caption: Sea fan coral (Subergorgia mollis) on a reef. The sea fan is a colony of tiny organisms which build this rocky structure around themselves for protection and support. The fan is orientated to present a large surface area to the prevailing current, allowing the coral organisms to filter plankton from the water. Photographed in Layang Layang, Malaysia.
