Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Vaughan, 1907

For a long time we had been looking for a picture of Porites brighami , and we have the incredible good fortune, that KeokiJ Sender has allowed us the use of his photos for the reeflex. Thank your very much.

George 'Keoki' Stender is afamous marine biologist and photograph from Hawaii.

Unfortunately this coral also now belongs to the endangered animals, we find it on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Characters: Colonies are small nodules, usually less than 0.1 metre across. Corallites are deep, funnel-shaped, and polygonal. Septa are thickened near the wall.

Colour: Grey, brown or green.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Common.
