description Sea springs belong to the eight-jet corals, although at first sight there are only a few similar features. A difference to their close relatives, the leather corals, however, becomes particularly clear. While leather corals are firmly seated on the substrate, the sea-spring is not fused with the substrate, but buries its foot in the sand or mud floor. It has an elastic trunk and is loose. Sea springs are filterers that feed on plankton!
