Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Tridacna noae (Röding, 1798)

Tridacna noae differs from T. maxima
in the appearance and arrangement of hyaline organs on the mantle in living specimens. In contrast, shell characters such as numbers
of radial ribs and prominence of rib scales, were relatively unreliable
