Husbandry

Dipsastraea laxa (Klunzinger, 1879)

Colonies are hemispherical. Corallites are conical and uniform in shape. They show both extra- and intratentacular budding. Paliform lobes form a neat crown. Septa are fine and neatly arranged. Costae are also neat; a tiny line of demarcation, visible underwater, separates costae of adjacent corallites.

Colour: Uniform, usually pale brown or pinkish-brown.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Common in the Red Sea, uncommon elsewhere.

Similar species: Favia helianthoides
