Captive breeding / propagation

Die Nachzuchten von Siderastrea stellata sind möglich. Leider ist die Anzahl an Nachzuchten noch nicht groß genug, um die Nachfrage des Handels zu decken. Wenn Sie sich für Siderastrea stellata interessieren, fragen Sie dennoch Ihren Händler nach Nachzuchten. Sollten Sie Siderastrea stellata bereits besitzen, versuchen Sie sich doch selbst einmal an der Aufzucht. Sie helfen so die Verfügbarkeit von Nachzuchten im Handel zu verbessen und natürliche Bestände zu schonen.

Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”

"Description: Colonies are massive and occasionally occur as free-living mobile balls. Corallites are rounded and shallow, 2.5-3.5 millimetres diameter. Septa have curved upper margins and are granulated. Most are not fused and do not form distinct cycles. Columellae consist of one or a few granules.
Color: Reddish-brown with pale walls.
Habitat: Shallow lagoons and intertidal pools.
Abundance: Common.
Similar Species: Superficially similar to Siderastrea radians but corallite characters are more like S. savignyana."
