Captive breeding / propagation

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