Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Acropora rosaria
Dana, 1846

Description: Colonies are upright bushes or cushion-like. Main branches have secondary and tertiary sub-branches. Axial corallites are large and dome-shaped but not elongate. Radial corallites are bead- or pocket-like. All corallites have thick walls.

Color: Usually cream or brown, sometimes bright blue or pink.
Habitat: Shallow reef environments.
Abundance: Sometimes common.

Similar Species: Acropora loripes, which has a less clearly upright branching pattern and tubular axial corallites which may be naked on one side, and more widely spaced radial corallites.
