Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Description: Colonies are commonly over 5 metres across and are composed of contorted branches and flat plates. Rarely submassive. Corallites are conical, 7-10 millimetres diameter. The coenosteum is smooth or nearly so. Costae are smooth or slightly beaded. Columellae are twisted into a spiral.

Similar Species: Echinopora horrida and E. gemmacea may both have similar growth-forms but both have spines down their costae and a spiny coenosteum.
