Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Benzoni, 2013

Echinophyllia tarae sp. n. inhabits protected reef habitats and was observed between 5 and 20 m depth. It commonly grows on dead coral fragments, usually parts of branching or tabular Acropora colonies, which are covered by crustose coralline algae and fleshy macroalgae.

This coral is described from the Gambier Islands, French Polynesia, South Pacific.
