The offspring of Acropora longicyathus are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Acropora longicyathus, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Acropora longicyathus, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Characters: Colonies are subarborescent, with bottlebrush branches where upright main branches sometimes form clumps. Axial and incipient axial corallites may be indistinguishable. Radial corallites are appressed. All corallites have thick walls with round openings.
