Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Characters: Colonies are submassive or columnar. Columns are short and usually form clumps. Corallites are uniform, and circular in outline. Septa are widely spaced and irregular. Columellae are small.

Die Haltung dieser Koralle gestaltet sich sehr einfach. Sie steht bei mir am höchsten Platz mit ca 30cm zum t5-Licht und zeigt sehr schnelles wachstum. So ist sie nun in einem Monat um 2cm im Durchmesser gewachsen. Diese Koralle habe ich nur durch Zufall auf einem Stein bewachsen mit leuchtend-blauen Discosomas erworben. Ich denke daß diese Koralle nur sehr selten in den Handel kommt.
