Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Lamouroux, 1816

Common on reefs at any depth.
Colonies tend to branch near the base resembling candelabra. Polyps extend from very long tubes, giving the colony a prickly or knobby appearance. Several species in the Tropical Western Atlantic.
