Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

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

Description: Colonies are thick short columns, oval in transverse section. Corallites are similar on the tops and sides of columns. They are very large (7-8 mm diameter), compact, with thin walls and thus have have an angular shape. Columellae are broad and are mostly composed of six septal deltas. Septa are short and uniform in size and spacing. Polyps are elongate when fully extended.
Color: Pale cream.
Habitat: Upper reef slopes.
Abundance: Uncommon.
Similar Species: Goniopora lobata and G. columna, which have similar columnar branches but smaller corallites. See also G. stokesi which has high, uneven septal walls. This species has the largest corallites of all the Goniopora.
