Why did the Atlanteans live underwater?


They could also breath air and live on land too, it's much easier to live on land, I mean how did they build things and develop technology underwater?

Basically The Atlanteans were regular humans but much more technologically advanced [more than we are now] around the time the rest of the planet was building pyramids... they had tapped into quantum energy that gave them an unlimited source but they cacked it up and it exploded causing their Continent to collapse into the ocean and mess with the genetics of the Atlanteans so they could breathe under water and affected different ones in different ways Some advanced more to look like fish, some became crab and horseshoe like but most stayed human appearing but can only breathe under water, but Highborn/Royalty can breathe both air and water
