Captive breeding / propagation

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

Very special thanks for the first two photos of Pavona chiriquiensis to Dave Burdick from GUAMREEFLIFE!
Thanks a lot, Dave!!

Characters: Colonies are massive. Corallites have thick walls and are well defined. Septo-costae are in two indistinct orders. Columellae are well developed. Tentacles are extended during the day giving colonies a furry appearance.

Colour: Green, grey and brown.

Similar Species: Pavona explanulata, which has similar corallite structures, but does not form massive colonies. See also Pavona decussata.

Habitat: Occurs on shallow protected rocky substrates.

Abundance: Uncommon.
