I've noticed that algae, especially kelp doesn't seem to attach to artificial reefs as easily it does to rocks. I don't know if it has anything to do with the substrate, but artificial reefs are almost always found offshore where they are subject to currents. Kelp stands a better chance of growing closer to shore where it has some protection. The animals associated with kelp forests are absent or in small numbers on the artificial reefs.
