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

Characters: Polyps are circular and generally dome-shaped, with a flat undersurface. Costae alternate at the polyp margin.
