Husbandry

Porites lutea Milne Edwards and Haime, 1851

Infos from AIMS Website:

Characters: Colonies are hemispherical or helmet-shaped and may be over 4 metres across. They usually form ‘micro-atolls’ in intertidal habitats. The surface is usually smooth.

Similar Species: Porites australiensis, which has thicker walls and five tall and three short pali. Underwater, the corallites of P. lutea are filled with skeletal elements, whereas the corallites of P. lobata appear to have fewer elements and thus look more open. Porites somaliensis has similar corallite characters.

Habe mir vor einer Woche einen blauen Schwamm gekauft, der auf dieser Koralle sitzt. Mir wurde gesagt, die Koralle sei tot, aber vorhin hab ich bemerkt, dass etliche Polypen rausschauen. Hat bei mir eine schöne Lila färbung, wrde sie aber kaum auf Dauer halten können, da sie eigentlich in einem Weichkorallenbecken sitzt ohne HQI.
