Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Palauastrea ramosa are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Palauastrea ramosa, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Palauastrea ramosa, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.

Husbandry

Yabe & Sugiyama, 1941

We extend special thanks to Philippe & Guido T. Poppe von Poppe Images, Marine Iconography of the Philippines Archipelago who provided this excellent photo.

Characters: Colonies are branching, consisting of anastomosing blunt-ended, non-tapering branches. Corallites are immersed, circular, with blunt style-like columellae and two unequal cycles of septa that do not fuse with the columella. The coenosteum is covered by fine spinules. Tentacles are sometimes extended during the day.

Colour: Cream or pinkish-brown.

Habitat: Restricted to turbid water and sandy substrates in Australia but found on upper reef slopes in equatorial countries.

Abundance: Uncommon in Australia, sometimes common in equatorial regions.

Similar species: Madracis mirabilis, Porites cylindrica
