Captive breeding / propagation

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