Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”

Agaricia undata
(Ellis and Solander, 1786)

Characters: Colonies form flat or upright unifacial explanate plates with corallites in long, roughly concentric valleys. Valleys are usually widely (6-7 mm) spaced, flat-bottomed and indistinct. Corallites are small and close together (5-8 per cm) and occur on the outward facing edge of valley walls (collines). Columellae are well developed.

Colour: Usually dark yellow, green or brown.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Uncommon, rare in Brazil.

Similar species: Agaricia fragilis
