Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

Characters: Colonies are digitate clumps, sometimes forming large stands. Branches are not tapered and divide irregularly. All corallites are rounded, with thick walls. Axial and incipient axial corallites are large and dome-shaped. Radial corallites are short and appressed.

Similar Species: Acropora ocellata, which has smaller axial corallites and more compact radial corallites. See also A. arabensis which has radiating branches and A. bushyensis which does not have appressed radial corallites

Extrem fragil, zeigt die schönsten Farben bei etwas höheren P04 Werten, als in einem normalen SPS-Aquarium mit Werten nahe der Null.
