Captive breeding / propagation

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

Characters: Colonies are encrusting to submassive. Corallites are deep, monocentric or with 2-3 centres together. Centres are separated by collines of irregular height and which run in irregular directions. Long and short septo-costae clearly alternate.

Colour: Uniform tan or mottled yellow-brown, sometimes with green mouths.

Habitat: Most reef environments except shallow lagoons.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Agaricia agaricites
