Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

Aktuell können wie nur sehr wenig über diese größere Weichkoralle sagen, da die Erstbeschreibung nicht im Internet zu finden ist.
Wir haben daher einen der führenden Weichkorallen-Spezialisten, Prof. Dr. Yehuda Benayahu, Israel, angeschrieben und höflich um Zusendung der Beschreibung gebeten.
Lobophytum rigidum findet kurz Erwähnung in dem wissenschaftlichen Aufsatz "The Octocorals of Dongsha Atoll (South China Sea): An Iterative Approach to Species Identification Using Classical Taxonomy and Molecular Barcodes", allerdings fehlen exakte Daten, u.a. zur Größe der Weichkorallen.

Wir werden diesen Eintrag zeitnah aktualisieren.

Kaufangebote oder Informationen über eine Aquariumhaltung sind derzeit ebenfalls nicht bekannt.
