  benpicst010.jpg - The first step after the molds are set up is to add sand to the bottom of the Reef Ball molds.  This makes a rough bottom with holes for starfish, lobster and other bottom dwellers and also gives the unit resistance from lateral movements during storms by increasing the friction on the bottom of the unit with the sea floor.  In the Cayman Islands...because natural reefs are nearby, addtional horizontally stablizing anchors are also added after the units are deployed.
