Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”
Veron, 2000

Description: Colonies consist of thin tapered branches which irregularly fuse. There are no basal laminae. Corallites are superficial giving branches a smooth appearance.
Color: Uniform pale grey with yellow tips to branches.
Habitat: Shallow protected fringing reefs.
Abundance: Locally common.
Similar Species: Porites sillimaniana, which has branches of similar size and appearance but has flat laminar bases. Calice characters are closest to P. ornata.
