The offspring of Stephanocoenia intersepta are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Stephanocoenia intersepta, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Stephanocoenia intersepta, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
This species is common and can be locally abundant. It is rare in Brazil.
This species is found in most reef communities, from depths of 1-100 m. The crustos form is the more abundant form of the species in shallower habitats, lagoons, and silty environments (5-15 m), while the boulder form is mostly in fore reef habitats, channels, and deep lagoons, and is more abundant from 10-20 m. The deep-boulder form is often encountered associated with a pinkish-brown polychaete worm.
