Soft Coral -- Photograph by Wolcott Henry, National Geographic... Like dancers in formation, this group of soft coral shines green in the western Pacific. Soft coral polyps differ from hard coral polyps in that they have eight tentacles while hard corals have multiples of six. Soft corals don't leave behind a hard skeleton when they die, as reefmaking hard corals do.
