Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Leptoseris papyracea are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Leptoseris papyracea, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Leptoseris papyracea, 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.”
Dana, 1846

Characters: Colonies are delicate, unifacial, contorted, irregularly divided fronds, each frond having just a few corallites. Tentacles are sometimes extended during the day.

Colour: Pale brown upper surface. Pale brown or white undersurface.

Habitat: Usually restricted to inter-reef areas on soft horizontal substrates where there is little sediment movement, but occasionally occurs in shallow habitats between the branches of other corals.

Abundance: Usually uncommon but may be a dominant species.
