Captive breeding / propagation

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

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."
