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