Captive breeding / propagation

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