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