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