Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Characters: Colonies consist of dense thickets of prostrate tapered, curving branches which occasionally fuse. Sub-branches are formed at frequent intervals and branch acutely. Axial corallites are moderately exsert. Incipient axial corallites cover the upper surface of horizontal branches. Radial corallites are of two sizes on main branches. On sub-branches they are exsert and tubular, with fine fluted margins giving colonies a spiky surface.

Colour: Brown, blue and yellow.

Habitat: Shallow reef slopes and flats.

Abundance: Occasionally locally common, usually rare.

Similar species: Acropora exquisita , Acropora parahemprichii , Acropora striata , Acropora tumida
