A group of open Orange Cup Corals (Tubastraea coccinea) polyps encrusting the wreck of the USCGC Duane at night in Key Largo, Florida.
Orange Cup Coral is not native to Florida, and it is suspected that it was brought to the area in the ballast of various ships. Fortunetly this coral seems to be mainly limited to ship wrecks such as The Duane and it is not as prolific on the coral reefs of the area.
