Captive breeding / propagation

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

Verrill, 1863


Characters: Colonies are submassive and usually lobed. They may be over 2 metres across. Corallites have irregular spiny walls. Polyps are often retracted during the day, but are elongate when extended giving colonies a mop-like appearance.

Colour: Grey or pinkish brown when polyps are retracted, brown when polyps are extended.

Habitat: Exposed reef slopes.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Alveopora verrilliana
