Waves

Yes, waves do affect the organisms that live in the Coral Reefs. The reason for this is because of tides and currents. They carry nutrients around with them. They move around a lot and they can be very strong at times. Because of this, all of the little animals or creatures/organisms move around a lot and it can be too much which will possibly cause some damage in/to them and/or around the organisms.
