Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”

(Lamarck, 1816)

Characters: Colonies are generally hemispherical with the surface divided into lobes. Corallites have walls composed of compacted rods and spines. Septa are composed of tapered spines which are connected low in the corallite. Polyps are long, with long tentacles giving a ragged appearance.

Colour: Grey or greenish-brown, sometimes with white oral cones.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Synonyms:
Alveopora retusa Verrill 1864
