Captive breeding / propagation

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