Coral fans are non-solid blocks that come in 5 variants: tube, brain, bubble, fire, and horn.

Dead coral fans are the dead variants of coral fans.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

Coral fans and their dead variants can be mined instantly, but can be obtained only when mined with a Silk Touch enchanted tool. Breaking coral fans without Silk Touch destroys the coral fan.

Natural generation[edit]

Coral fans and dead coral fans naturally generate in coral reef structures.

Post-generation[edit]

Bone meal[edit]

When bone meal is used in warm ocean biomes, it has a chance of generating coral fans.

Dead coral fans[edit]

In order for coral fans to stay alive, they must be placed in water. In Java Edition, coral fans can also be placed outside of water as long as one of the blocks surrounding it contains water. If placed outside of water, they transform into their respective dead coral fan immediately‌[Bedrock Edition only] or after a few seconds‌[Java Edition only].

Wall Coral Fans[edit]

Wall coral fans cannot be obtained through vanilla means. in Java Edition, they are completely unobtainable, but in Bedrock Edition, they can be obtained through add-ons or inventory editing, though the item form is badly glitched to the point of being completely nameless.

Usage[edit]

Coral fans and dead coral fans can be used as a building or decoration block.

Placement[edit]

All coral fans (and their dead variants) can be placed on the four sides and the top surface of blocks; they cannot be placed on the bottom surface

Pushing with pistons[edit]

Live coral fans cannot be pushed by pistons (attempting to do so results in the coral fan breaking). Dead coral fans can be pushed by pistons as long as they will still be "supported" in the new position (not floating).

History[edit]

Java Edition Classic
May 21, 2009Notch expresses interest in a suggestion regarding corals by user "solarblade".
Java Edition Alpha
June 28, 2010Notch mentioned on his blog: "I tried adding corals, but it's really hard to draw a single block that looks like corals, since it's really more about crazy amounts of variation and diversity. But I do know that the corals will have tiny fish particles around them."
Java Edition
October 5, 2012Coral were jokingly teased in the fake snapshot 12marc40awesome, along with fish as mobs and "fish blocks".
