Leptoseris cailletiis commonly referred to as Lace lettuce coral. Difficulty in the aquarium: There are no reports available yet that this animal has already been kept in captivity successfully. Toxicity: Toxic hazard unknown.
The offspring of Leptoseris cailleti are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Leptoseris cailleti, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Leptoseris cailleti, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
