Captive breeding / propagation

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

The coral forms quite slender branches with a diameter between 2.5 - 3.5 mm, the tips of the branches are sometimes slightly nodular.
