Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

Wallace, 1994

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

Special thanks for her two photos to Dr. Elizabeth Wood, UK.

Colonies are bushy with fine matted branches. Branches tend to be perpendicular to older branches although all branches are of similar thickness (approximately 5 mm). Axial and incipient axial corallites intergrade with radial corallites and are distinctively tubular, with truncated ends. Radial corallites project almost perpendicularly from branches and are tubular and uniform in shape.

Colour: Brown with pale branch tips.

Habitat: Sheltered reef slopes.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Acropora cardenae , Acropora fenneri
