Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Opresko, 1996

This grows in large bushy colonies which frequently exceed 1 m tall. Commonly they grow out horizontally from walls.

Secondary branches are fine and elongated, giving a fine appearance to this species.

It is often abundant, especially on deep reefs, on steep surfaces and in slightly sedimented areas.
