Captive breeding / propagation

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

Characters: Colonies are clumps of irregular fine upright or prostrate branches. These consist of little more than elongate axial corallites with widely spaced radial corallites. The undersurface of prostrate branches are usually devoid of corallites. Radial corallites are variable in size, but are mostly pocket-like, short and appressed, with nariform openings.

Colour: Pale brown branches with darker radial corallites and sometimes coloured axial corallites.

Habitat: Protected reef slopes.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Acropora cardenae
