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