Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Following Infos are from AIMS Website:

Characters: Colonies are thick corymbose to encrusting plates. Branchlets are short and thick and may be almost encrusting where colonies are exposed to strong wave action. There are usually several axial or incipient axial corallites per branchlet.

Similar Species: Acropora anthocercis exposed to strong wave action is distinctive; colonies in more protected environments are more like other species including A. hyacinthus, which has smaller and less appressed radial corallites. Acropora willisae also has multiple axial corallites per branchlet but has tubular radial corallites not in a rosette. See also A. appressa, A. desalwii and A. parapharaonis.

Gehört zu den schönsten aber auch sehr seltesten Korallen die es bei uns im Handel gibt
ich habe mit ganz viel Glück vor einem halben Jahr eine davon bekommen ,und kann folgendes dazu sagen :
Braucht wie alle acro. viel Licht,sauberes Wasser, viel strömung und gute Wasserwerte
Wächst aber auch dann recht langsam ,bildet eine grosse Fußscheibe ,die grüne Farbe hat sie auch wenn die Wasserwerte nicht so gut sind !Ist aber nicht für Anfänger geeignet!
