Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Acropora glauca are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Acropora glauca, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Acropora glauca, 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 glauca
(Brook, 1893)

Characters: Colonies consist of flat, highly fused, basal branches with irregular upright branchlets. The entire colony is sometimes a single solid plate and sometimes upward branchlets are not developed. Axial corallites are indistinct from radial corallites. Radial corallites have wide openings and thick lips.

Colour: Brown, cream or green.

Habitat: Rocky foreshores of subtropical locations.

Abundance: Common in subtropical locations, rare elsewhere.

Similar species: Acropora arabensis , Acropora branchi , Acropora orbicularis , Acropora retusa

Source reference: Veron (2000). Taxonomic references: Veron and Wallace (1984), Wallace (1999). Additional identification guides: Veron (1986), Nishihira and Veron (1995).
