Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Dana, 1846

Characters: Colonies may form large patches of reefs. Branches are cylindrical and commonly fuse. Growth-forms and corallite characters are extremely variable so much so that single reef patches are composites of distinct races.

Colour: Mostly dull greys and browns.

Habitat: Shallow protected reef and lagoon environments.

Abundance: The dominant coral in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii.

Similar species: Porites cylindrica, Porites harrisoni
