Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

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

Acropora japonica
Veron, 2000

Characters: Colonies are flat plates, or tiers of plates with short digitate branchlets. Small colonies exposed to wave action have extensive encrusting bases and widely spaced branchlets. In most colonies branches are tightly compacted. Axial corallites are small. Radial corallites are tubular, uniform in size down branch sides and usually have slightly flaring lips.

Colour: Uniform green or brown.

Habitat: Shallow rocky foreshores.

Abundance: Common, and may be a dominant species.

Similar species: Acropora digitifera , Acropora monticulosa , Acropora seriata

Source reference: Veron (2000). Taxonomic reference: Veron (2002). Additional identification guide: Nishihira and Veron (1995, as Acropora digitifera from mainland Japan).
