Captive breeding / propagation

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

Die Koralle braucht starke Strömung und viel Licht. Bei guten Wasserwerten wächst sie sehr schnell. Eine sehr schöne Koralle!

Sinularia polydactila ist bei guten Wasserverhältnissen einfach zu pflegen. Sie steht in meinem AQ relativ nah an der Wavebox, bekommt also ordentlich Strömung und auch sehr viel Licht. Aufgrund des schnelles Wachstums ist sie für kleine Becken allerdings nicht zu empfehlen.
