Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

Verrill, 1864

For a long time we had been looking for a picture of Pocillopora danae , and we have the incredible good fortune, that Jorina van der Westhuizen of
the Neville Coleman Legacy has allowed us the use of his photos for the reeflex. Thank your very much.

Neville Colemann was a very famous marine biologist and photograph from Australia.

Unfortunately this coral also now belongs to the endangered animals, we find it on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
