The offspring of Anomastraea irregularis are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Anomastraea irregularis, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Anomastraea irregularis, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Very special thanks to Professor Michael Schleyer from Durban, South Africa for his photo of Anomastraea irregularis.
