Captive breeding / propagation

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

Auch ich halte dieses problemlose Tier und freue mich über die tolle Wuchsform die an einen Sombrero erinnert.
Leider wird es dann aber schwierig das Tier von Ablagerungen frei zu halten. Dies sollte evtl. vor dem Kauf noch in Betracht gezogen werden.

Das Tier kann sehr gut, auch mit größeren Brocken, zugefüttert werden. Auf meinem Bild verputzt es gerade eine rote Mückenlarve.

Diese Koralle ist äußerst pflege leicht. Braucht nur wenig Licht und mäßig viel Strömung. Sie sollte nicht im Sand liegen da sie sonst an den Kontaktstehlen Abbstirbt.

Ich halte diese Koralle seit einiger Zeit. Sie ist im oberen Bereich an einer Riffkante befestigt und bekommt sehr viel T5 Licht ab. Trotzdem ist das Wachstum sehr verhalten. Dennoch ist es eine schöne und dankbare Koralle.
