Captive breeding / propagation

Acropora gomezi is easy to breed. There are offspring in the trade available. If you are interested in Acropora gomezi, please contact us at Your dealer for a progeny instead of a wildcat. You help to protect the natural stocks.

Husbandry

Characters:

Colonies are arborescent with straight tapered branches forming thickets. Sub-branches form at obtuse angles. Axial corallites are prominent and tubular. Radial corallites are small and curved near branch tips, becoming tubular further down branches where they project perpendicularly and are only slightly curved. These become incipient axial corallites which have small pocket-shaped radial corallites around their bases. All corallites have thick walls with rounded openings.

Colour: Pale brown with white axial corallites. Similar species: Acropora parilis and A. exquisita, both of which have finer branches and smaller corallites. See also A. pectinatus.
