Captive breeding / propagation

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

Septa are in three cycles, the first being exsert with prominent elaborated spines. Costae are irregularly contorted, also with elaborated spines which extend across the coenosteum.
