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

Qur special thanks go to Acro Al from Australia, who sent us two photos of Tridacna ningaloo and gave us the permission to use them for the reeflex.net.
He has bred these clams in captivity for the first time in the world.
