Captive breeding / propagation

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