Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Phoxocampus tetrophthalmus are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Phoxocampus tetrophthalmus, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Phoxocampus tetrophthalmus, try breeding yourself.
