history[edit]

It would be useful to be told when and how the existence of deep water coral became known. Deipnosophista (talk) 06:42, 15 February 2009 (UTC)

Odd sentence[edit]

"Lophelia communities support diverse marine life, such as sponges, polychaete worms, mollusks, crustaceans, brittle stars, starfish, sea urchins, bryozoans, sea spiders, fishes, and many other vertebrate and invertebrate species."

Off hand, given that even agnathans are commonly referred to as "fish," I cannot think of any vertebrate other than a fish that would be found in a deep-sea reef environment. Urselius (talk) 14:48, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
