    5) Urinating on a jellyfish sting has random effects. It can sometimes ease the pain, or it can trigger cnidocytes on the skin to inject more venom in to the body. Its double or nothing, so take your chances. (Why not try something less revolting, like vinegar?)

    6) Most corals DO sting, so don't touch them! And some corals may hold up to 1,500 different species.

    7) Jellyfishes are made up of more than 95% water and they have no brains, blood or nervous system.

    Photosynthetic ones require light to survive.
    Diodogorgia nodulifera
    Common Names: Red/Yellow Tree Gorgonian, Sea Blade, Finger Coral, Colorful Sea Rod
    Habitat:
    They are found under ledges, cave walls, shady areas, and usually deep in the water ( 50-500ft ). Since they are nonphotosynthetic, the Colorful Sea Rod lives in areas with less light.
    Description:
    The Colorful Sea Rod grow to about 10 inches, and they have small, sparsely branched colonies. Their branch pattern is Y-shaped and is made of a gorgonin, a protein-substance.
    D. nodulifera comes in two color forms:
    1. Red Finger Gorgonian: deep red branches, with red or yellow calyces (raised cups) that white polyps rise out of.
    2. Yellow Finger Gorgonian: orange to yellow branches, with red or violet calyces (raised cups) that polyps rise out of.

    Feeding:
    This species does not have symbiotic relationships with algae or zooxanthellae, so they primarily depend on the zooplankton and other organic particles that are in the water columns.
    Reproduction:
    There is no physical difference between genders. They reproduce by breakage and refragmentation, and spawn (sexual reproduction).
