Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Acropora solitaryensis
Veron and Wallace, 1984

Similar Species: Acropora natalensis and A. branchi. See also A. glauca, which has a similar growth-form but has rounded peripheral corallites and indistinct axial corallites. Acropora divaricata and A. stoddarti may have similar corallites; the former seldom forms flat plates, the latter always does. Colonies in some exposed habitats resemble A. irregularis.
