The offspring of Porites colonensis are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Porites colonensis, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Porites colonensis, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Colonies are thin plates, sometimes in tiers. Surfaces of plates are smooth or undulating.
