[Extract] Intertidal rock pools are a common feature of the numerous coastal rocky headlands within the Solitary Islands Marine Park in northern New South Wales, Australia (about 30°S; Smith 2005) and provide a series of unusual habitats for corals (Smith and Simpson 1991). These coral-bearing rock-pools are isolated from the ocean for varying durations between tidal cycles depending on the tides and their height above tidal datum. The pools range in size from about 1 to 18 m2 and vary in depth (at low tide) from about 0.4 to 1.5 m. Some of these pools have large colonies that almost entirely cover their walls (see large colony of Homophyllia bowerbanki photographed in May 2021 with a 1-m ruler for scale in Panels A and B). Due to this periodic isolation, conditions in the pools can be extreme.
