Captive breeding / propagation

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

Chevalier, 1975

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”

Infos from SDMAS Website.
Description: Colonies are encrusting, sometimes submassive. Small colonies have a conspicuous central corallite. Corallites are plocoid, becoming widely spaced and Echinophyllia-like (Pectiniidae) at colony edges. Septa have long pointed teeth. Colonies have fleshy tissue over the skeleton.
Color: Dark brown, rust-red or green.

Similar Species: Acanthastrea echinata, which has similar but smaller corallites which are less widely spaced, without an Echinophyllia-like appearance towards the colony periphery.
