Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

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

"Description: Colonies are submassive or laminar. Corallites are in short valleys. Walls are rounded although they may have a central ridge. Petaloid septo-costae are usually short, sometimes inconspicuous or absent.
Color: Uniform grey, brown, tan or cream, usually with dark corallite centres.
Habitat: Shallow reef environments.
Abundance: Uncommon.
Similar Species: Psammocora superficialis, which has less distinctive corallites with distinctly petaloid primary septo-costae. See also P. haimeana."
