Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Characters: Colonies are composed of fused horizontal branches, forming small tables. Branchesusually have upturned ends which taper to a point. Corallites on horizontal branches are mostly immersed; those on upright branches are usually of two sizes, the larger being tubular, with sharp edges. Skeletons have a permanent dark colour.

Colour: Usually bright or pale blue or brown.

Habitat: Turbid or clear water on upper or lower reef slopes.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Acropora hoeksemai
