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.
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.
