Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

(Lamarck, 1816)

Colonies have extensive encrusting bases with short branches which form a compact clump. Corallites are slightly foveolate (funnel shaped) and immersed in the coenosteum. The coenosteum is smooth or forms thin ridges between corallites.

Colour: Pale brown.

Habitat: Fringing reef flats.

Abundance: Rare.
