Are coral reefs definitely

Are coral reefs definitely invertebrates? Can they also be classed as lichens? Thanks

The animals making coral reefs are invertebrates.

You have placed this brain coral in Central London. Was it in an aquarium? If not, you might want to change the location.

Lichens are a symbiotic association between a fungus and either a bacterium or an alga.

Yes, the picture was taken at an aquarium.

Oh I see, thank you for the feedback.
