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.

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.
