Captive breeding / propagation

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

Auf dem zweiten Bild ist keine Fungia zu sehen sondern eine Ctenactis. Deutlich zu erkennen an den gezähnten septa.

Hallo Molamola,

vielen Dank für Deinen Kommentar und Deine Aufmerksamkeit!
Nach Betrachtung der Fotos auf Corals of the World stimme ich Dir hier zu, wir werden gerne prüfen, zu welcher der Ctenactis-Arten das Tier gehört.
