Husbandry

(Milne-Edwards & Haime, 1848)

Clay Bryce from the Aquatic Zoology Western Australian Muesum did take a wonderfull photo of a juvenile colony, showing detail of septo-costae.

Colonies have thick laminar bases and blunt-ended columns which occasionally branch. Valleys are meandroid and sinuous. Septa are thick and fuse irregularly with each other and with the columellae. Columellae are composed of a few thick septal teeth. Tentacles are usually extended only at night and are long, tapering, and of uniform length.

Colour: Usually cream or yellow-brown.

Habitat: Usually found in partly turbid water such as around fringing reefs and in lagoons.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Dendrogyra cylindrus, Leptoria irregularis.

This species is usually found in most reef environments. This species is found from 2-25 m
