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