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