Coral reefs can only be found in warm ocean biomes in Minecraft. However, players will not find them in the deep warm ocean biomes.

As stated above, coral reefs are home to some unique blocks that cannot be found anywhere else in Minecraft.

These reefs contain coral blocks, coral fans, and coral, which are all brightly colored. They also have sea pickles, which can be seen as the light in the image above.

Sea pickles can be placed on land as a source of light. They can also be smelted in a furnace to create lime green dye.
