Husbandry

Milne-Edwards & Haime, 1848

Sometimes zooxanthellate. Corals are solitary, free-living, and have a flat base. They have a commensal relationship with a sipunculid worm (Aspidosiphon corallicola) which moves the coral about on soft substrates and prevents it from becoming buried. Tentacles are usually extended only at night. Larvae initially settle on a microgastropod shell which they usually envelop during subsequent growth. Corals have only one corallite which is circular. They have prominent costae.

Colour: Pale brown, often with a greenish oral disc.

Habitat: Always found on soft horizontal substrates at depths of 20 metres or more, usually in association with Heteropsammia cochlea and the fungiid Cycloseris cyclolites.

Abundance: May be locally abundant (commonly 40 individuals per square metre).

Hallo Molamola

vielen Dank für Deinen Beitrag, Solche Korrekturen sind absolut erwünscht, daher danke ich dafür. Das Bild stammt von den POPE Brüdern aber auch die können sich mal irren, so wie es immer mal passieren kann, gerae im HInblick auf bestimmte Korallen.

Bin mir nicht sicher ob es hier hin gehört aber auf dem angegebenen Foto ist nicht Heterocyathus aequicostatus zu sehen sondern Heteropsammia cochlea. Heterocyathus aequicostatus hat deutliche Costae die sich an den Seiten langziehen. Kann man auch sehr gut auf den Bildern bei dem oben angegebenen Link von Corals of the World sehen.
