Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Siderastrea savignyana are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Siderastrea savignyana, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Siderastrea savignyana, 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 encrusting or are low mounds up to one metre across. Corallites are polygonal, 2-4 millimetres diameter. Septa are neatly arranged: 30-35 at the wall, fusing in neat fan-like groups so that 10-15 fuse with the columella. Walls have a fine ridge along their tops.
Color: Pale tan or with dark centres and white corallite walls.
Habitat: Shallow reef environments or sandy lagoons. Colonies are often partly buried in sand.
Abundance: Uncommon.
Similar Species: Pseudosiderastrea tayami, which has a similar growth-form and appearance, but septa have saw-like teeth. Superficially similar to some monocentric Pavona (Agariciidae)."
