Default Re: Ignorant Stupid Question

The coral actually filters the water wich makes it clearer. also the coral reefs are a barrier to waves which keeps sand and silt from being stirred up which leads to clearer water and better visibility. Deep water found offshore is always blue because there is not much particulate matter in it.
