Are fish and other marine creatures attracted to Biorock reefs?

Like an oasis in the desert, all forms of coral life are quickly attracted to Biorock reefs. Many forms of reef life have been observed to be attracted to the structures, and none repelled.

However it is the organisms with limestone skeletons, such as corals, clams, oysters, barnacles, tube worms and sand-producing algae that are especially benefited, allowing them to outgrow weedy algae that often smothers and kills corals in polluted waters.

 

The result is that mineral accretion structures quickly become real coral reefs dominated by corals with a wide variety of normal reef creatures.
