Captive breeding / propagation

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