The offspring of Pocillopora capitata are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Pocillopora capitata, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Pocillopora capitata, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Very special thanks for the foto to Prof. Dr. Peter Glynn, Miami, USA!
