Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Leptoseris scabra are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Leptoseris scabra, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Leptoseris scabra, 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.”
Vaughan, 1907

Characters: Colonies are composed of encrusting, unifacial laminae which may become highly contorted forming hollow columns or tubes. A central corallite may be distinguishable. Corallites become more widely spaced towards the colony perimeter. They are irregular and usually outwardly inclined. Long and short septo-costae strongly alternate and are interlinked in complex patterns.

Colour: Dull grey, brown or green, usually with white margins.

Habitat: Usually found on vertical or overhung walls in deeper water.

Abundance: Usually uncommon.

Similar species: Leptoseris solida , Leptoseris striata
