Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

Ehrenberg, 1834

Colonies have encrusting bases on which cylindrical columns are developed that may reach 2 metres in height. Valleys are meandroid. Septo-costae are thick, in two alternating orders; they do not join at the tops of valleys and thus leave a neat groove along the tops of walls. Tentacles remain extended during the day giving columns a furry appearance.

Classification: Biota > Animalia (Kingdom) > Cnidaria (Phylum) > Anthozoa (Class) > Hexacorallia (Subclass) > Scleractinia (Order) > Meandrinidae (Family) > Dendrogyra (Genus)
