Captive breeding / propagation

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

This coral is a relatively common zooxanthellate scleractinian and is found in deep water fore reef environments and is mostly found from 14-41 meters depth.
