Like the extinct crystal coral, the crystal koral is the next generation of binucleus crystal shrub (red). It is similar to its extinct relative, except that its reason for evolving is a bit backwards. Crystal coral formed because of to the krakowlimus lithovora eating off the protective outer coating, making it vulnerable to other creatures to eat during high tide. But crystal koral gets taken over by stickyballs during low tide. Each time the stickyballs cover it, it cannot perform photosynthesis, and part of it dies off. In the spots that are not covered, it grows, deforming the crystal koral's shape. When high tide comes, it washes the stickyballs off once again, and it can heal itself. In short, due to this extreme relationship, crystal koral only grows in the tidal zone of the shallows/beach, thus not directly competing with it ancestor.
