Captive breeding / propagation

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

Glynn, 1999

For a long time we had been looking for a picture of Pocillopora patula, and we have the incredible good fortune, that Prof. Dr. Peter Glynn, Miami, USA, a famous marine biologist and photograph, has allowed us the use of his photos for the reeflex.
Thank your very much, dear Peter!
