Captive breeding / propagation

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

its easy to keep, but not to much light !

Acanthastrea faviaformis resembles the faviid genus Favia more than any other Acanthastrea and has been called Favia matthaii in other publications. See also A. regularis.
