Many soft corals contain numerous toxic compounds such as terpenoids and sarcophine that can deter coral growth. It is a natural defense that is used to deter other organisms from eating them, but can also be released to help defend against other approaching corals. Carbon and skimming is the most affective way of removing this from the water column.
