Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Die Weichkoralle Sinularia higai wurde bereits 2002, von Prof. Dr. Yehuda Benayahu aus Israel, in den Gewässern um die Ryūkyū-Inseln, Japan, entdeckt und erstbeschrieben.
Diese Weichkoralle wurde zu Ehren von Professor Tatsuo Higa, University of the Ryukyu, Japan nach ihm benannt.

Die Weichkoralle bildet eine flache, dünne, krustenförmige Struktur aus und ist mit Erhöhungen versehen, auf der Oberfläche der Koralle befinden sich viele außenskelettartige Hartteile (Sklerite).

Aquaristische Haltungserfahrungen zu dieser Weichkoralle fehlen bislang.
