Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Fenner & Veron, 2000

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”

Very special thanks to Dr. Douglas Fenner, one of the most important marine scientist of the world, for the first photo of Porites branneri.

Colonies are branching, the branches being irregularly contorted and fused. Corallites are very small and are deeply embedded in the coenosteum. The coenosteum is very rough and seldom surrounds corallites, but rather forms irregular ridges.

Colour: Pale brown or pinkish, with yellow tips to branches.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Porites nigrescens


Classification: Biota > Animalia (Kingdom) > Cnidaria (Phylum) > Anthozoa (Class) > Hexacorallia (Subclass) > Scleractinia (Order) > Poritidae (Family) > Porites (Genus)
