Glad the reef didnt get tore up to bad
It takes a long long time to build a coral reef. Step by step the reefs survive on partnerships. And the most important partners are you and I.
Sound like a small % was effected, near the top, and lotts of that % was broken, which will fall to lower levels.
Hope the damage was for the best, and regrows/acclimates to its new conditions, and grows all the stronger!
Got an increase is fish spawning too? More food to grow new reef.
Just trying to be optimistic. Hope I am right. I am sure the broken branching reef affected, near the surface, left really nice bases to regrow, and be better for the worst.
