Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Echinophyllia echinoporoides -
Veron/Pichon 1980

Description: Colonies are encrusting laminae, sometimes with nodules at the colony centre. Corallites are small (4-6 mm diameter), mostly immersed and are slightly inclined towards the colony margins.

Color: Usually a uniform cream to dark brownish-green, but commonly brick red in Japan.

Habitat: Most reef environments but especially turbid water on protected steeply sloping substrates.

Abundance: Uncommon in Australia, common in the northern hemisphere.

Similar Species: Unlike other Echinophyllia, but superficially resembles the faviid Echinopora lamellosa. It is readily distinguished by its exsert costae.
