Here are some pattern guidelines for making your own coral reef:
Crochet coral reef
The idea for crocheting a coral reef has been around for several years; a driving force for this is the Institute For Figuring. Their website has a wealth of information on coral reefs, the threats they face, and the project to create coral reefs from crochet. Here are some additional websites with pictures, information, and patterns:
NOAA photo library pictures of actual coral reefs
The Gainsville Florida reef information, links, and patterns
Crocheted corals on Pinterest pictures of crochet corals from many sources
This is the kind of project you can make as small or large as you like, or 'grow' it over time. Mine is rather small and mounted on a wooden plaque, but I think that it will grow :-)
