Caption: Soft coral (Dendronephthya sp.). The red tentacles of the feeding coral organisms (polyps) are seen here. These sift food particles from the water. Most corals feed on minute animals (zooplankton), but Dendronephthya sp. corals feed on phytoplankton (tiny plants and algae). Photographed in Malaysia.
