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