Captive breeding / propagation

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

Individual corallites or small groups of corallites are usually not connected or have dead basal connections and are readily broken apart and scattered. Corallites are rounded, averaging 15-20 millimetres diameter and vary in shape as illustrated. Septa of living colonies have rounded, bead-like, dentations.

Colour: Mostly bluish-grey.
