Captive breeding / propagation

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