Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Turak, DeVantier & Veron, 2000

Very special thanks for the first photo of the rare Montipora saudii to Steve Garrett from Garretts Acropolis, USA!

From Corals of the World

Characters: Colonies are extensive upright to prostrate laminae and may also be encrusting. The colony surface is covered by elongate tuberculae which hide the corallites from view. The tuberculae are upwardly inclined on upright laminae. The coenosteum is coarse.

Colour: Grey with pale tips to tuberculae.

Similar Species: Montipora circumvallata, which has finer branches. See also M. undata.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Common.
