Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Similar Species: Agaricia tenuifolia, which has smaller, thinner, more divided fronds with thinner margins and less tendency to form horizontal plates.
