Captive breeding / propagation

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