Can corral grow in the Great Salt Lake?

No. Coral reefs are huge structures composed of limestone deposited by living things. Coral is actually composed of minute, fragile creatures called coral polyps. There are no coral in the Great Salt Lake.

Most reefs are found between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. In the Pacific Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean Sea, the Red Sea, and the Arabian Gulf. Coral reefs grow best in warm water (70–85° F or 21–29° C).
