Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Pseudosiderastrea tayami are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Pseudosiderastrea tayami, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Pseudosiderastrea tayami, 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.”
"Description: Colonies are encrusting to slightly dome-shaped and up to 160 millimetres across. Corallites are cerioid, polygonal and 3-6 millimetres diameter. Septa are evenly spaced and usually fuse with each other in fan-like groups. They have fine, saw-like teeth.
Columellae consist of one to four pinnules.
Color: Pale grey with distinctive white corallite walls. Uniform brown in the western Indian Ocean.
Habitat: Very shallow water, attached to bare rock.
Abundance: Uncommon and cryptic.
