Captive breeding / propagation

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

Very special thanks for this foto to Prof. Dr. Gustav Paulay, USA!!

The coral lives in a depth range is from 0-30 meters and it reproduce asexually by fragmentation.

Colonies are free-living, irregular and dome- or bell-shaped or flat.
They are usually attached to the substrate.
They are thin and fragile. Septa have distinctive knob-shaped teeth.
They are mostly perpendicular to the colony margin, but are sometimes in two or more groups, one group being perpendicular to the colony margin.

Colour: Brown with pale margins.
Corallite centres may be white.

Habitat: Sheltered habitats, reef slopes and lagoons.

Abundance: Rare.

Similar species: Halomitra meierae, Halomitra pileus, Zoopilus echinatus
