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