Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

Siderastrea siderea
Ellis and Solander, 1786

Description:
Colonies are encrusting to massive and are usually over one metre across. Corallites are 3-4.5 millimetres diameter, with numerous septa tightly compacted giving a smooth surface. Septa are uniformly separated and reduce in number from the wall to the columella without forming many fan-like fusions.
Color: Usually light reddish-brown.

Similar Species: Corallites are larger than any other Siderastrea.
