Original Paragraph A coral reef is like a bustling underwater city filled with loads of colorful sea creatures. Think of the corals as the buildings, built by tiny creatures called polyps. These polyps create the coral using a substance called calcium carbonate, which forms the structure of the reef. This grand structure then becomes a home for other sea creatures. Finally, the creatures who live in the reef all have different jobs. Some help clean the reef, others protect it, and some even help it grow. It's a busy, vibrant, and important part of the ocean's ecosystem.
