Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”
Forskål, 1775

Description: Colonies are submassive, laminar or contorted anastomosing branches and columns, commonly over 5 metres across. Corallites are separated into groups by ridges which characteristically converge towards each other forming flame-shaped patterns.
Color: Pale cream, yellow or dark bluish-brown, often with pale branch tips. Sometimes brightly coloured in shallow water.
Habitat: Shallow reef environments.
Abundance: Common and may be a dominant species in a wide range of habitats.
Similar Species: Porites rus can be confused with Montipora (Acroporidae) underwater. Closest to P. monticulosa. See also P. deformis, P. cumulatus and P. ornata, all of which have small corallites
