Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Description: Colonies are massive or form thick plates. They are meandroid with short, widely separated valleys interconnected with light blistery coenosteum. Septa are large, solid, smooth edged, exsert and widely spaced. Walls are solid. Columellae are absent. Tentacles are extended only at night. During the day the whole colony surface is covered with a mass of vesicles the size of small grapes and are grape-like or bifurcated in shape. These retract when disturbed.
Color: Pale grey, sometimes dull green.
Habitat: Turbid reef environments.
Abundance: Common in protected habitats such as crevices and overhangs, especially in turbid water with tidal currents.
Similar Species: Plerogyra sinuosa.

Diese Koralle gehört mit zu den ältesten Bewohnern meines Beckens und hat bisher alle Höhen und Tiefen bei mir überlebt. Gerade die anfänglichen Fehler, die wohl bei fast jedem auftreten hat sie sehr gut verkraftet. Daher würde ich sie sogar als Anfängertier einstufen. Jedoch sollte unbedingt bedacht werden, daß sie in der Lage ist sehr lange Kampftentakeln auszufahren. Bei mir werden diese mitunter über 20 cm lang. Ein wenig zusätzliche Fütterung mit Schrimpsstückchen nimmt sie sehr gern.
