Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World”
Nemenzo, 1976

Description: Colonies are clumps of thin anastomosing branches or thin basal laminae with upright irregular branches arising from central parts.
Corallites are often aligned in rows on the laminae.
Tentacles are often extended during the day.
Color: Pale yellow or brown, usually with white corallite centres.
Habitat: Mostly on reef flats.
Abundance: Uncommon.
Similar Species: Porites latistella, which has similar growth-forms but more excavated corallites.
Corallites on branches resemble those of P. nigrescens.
Branches are like those of P. flavus.
