Captive breeding / propagation

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

"Characters: Colonies form flat unifacial explanate plates which are commonly arranged in whorls. Corallites are at the bottom of long, roughly concentric V-shaped valleys. Centres are widely spaced (3-5 per cm). Septa are thick, do not alternate, and most reach the corallite centre.

Colour: Tan or grey, usually with pale margins.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Agaricia fragilis , Agaricia lamarcki"
