Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”

Agaricia tenuifolia
Dana, 1848

Characters: Colonies form a complex of thin upright bifacial fronds which have thin margins. They are usually contorted, elongate, and divide irregularly. Corallites are in valleys which are generally concentric and less than 50 millimetres long.

Colour: Brown, greenish or rust, sometimes with pale margins of septo-costae and sometimes with orange tentacles.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Common.


Source reference: Veron (2000). Taxonomic references: Wells (1973b), Cairns (1982). Additional identification guides: Colin (1978), Humann (1993).
