Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

Wells, 1954

For a long time we had been looking for a picture of Acropora palmerae, and we have the incredible good fortune, that Jorina van der Westhuizen of
the Neville Coleman Legacy has allowed us the use of his photos for the reeflex. Thank your very much.

Neville Colemann was a very famous marine biologist and photograph from Australia.

Unfortunately this coral also now belongs to the endangered animals, we find it on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

Colonies: The animal forms flat and partly curved plates, which reminds us of the shovels of an elk, and also the typical Acropora branches.

Color: The plates of the coral have a greenish- or pinkish-brown color.

Abundance: Uncommon, except on some outer reefs.

Similar species: Acropora pinguis
