Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

Leptoseris striata
Fenner and Veron, 2000

Characters: Colonies are small (less than 50 mm across), partly encrusting and have one or several conspicuous central corallites. Peripheral corallites are small or may be absent. Peripheral corallites are inclined towards the colony margins and are distributed irregularly. They have small openings. Septo-costae are granulated and strongly alternate. These radiate from the central corallites giving the colony a striped appearance.

Colour: Brown or yellowish with white margins and white tops to costae.

Habitat: Deep reef slopes.

Abundance: Rare.

Similar species: Leptoseris hawaiiensis , Leptoseris scabra

Husbandry know-how of owners

Kleine Steinkoralle die bei mir mit Lebendgestein reinging. Sie ist sehr klein und wächst auch sehr wenig. Sie hat ihr grösse in 6 Monaten nur verdoppelt und hat jetzt 1 bis 1,5 cm Durchmesser. Wächst eher rund und flach. Kann sich aufblähen aber das eher in die vertikale und nicht in die Horizontale. Recht anspruchslos. Scheint etwas stärker zu nesseln, da sie sich den platz freihält und die stark wachsende sympodium (metalcyonium) drum rum wächst. Gelb-beige mit grünen Reflexen.
