Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Acropora yongei
Veron and Wallace, 1984

From Aims

Characters: Colonies consist of dense thickets of short cylindrical branches. They are frequently over 2 metres across and may form extensive single species stands. Axial corallites are exsert and tubular. Radial corallites are uniform in size and tubular, with flaring lower lips.

Similar Species: Acropora haimei which has primarily upright branches and corallites of irregular size. Acropora tumida and A. striata have similar growth-forms; the latter also has similar corallites except that radial corallites are irregular with less conspicuously flaring lower lips. See also A. donei
