Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

From Charly Veron from AIMS:

Characters: Colonies may be large (over 4 metres across) and form dense thickets of frequently dividing branches. Branches are 7-9 millimetres thick and slightly tapered. Axial corallites are prominent. Radial corallites are rounded, tubular and appressed except towards branch tips, and are arranged in rows.

Colour: Grey-brown, usually with pale yellow corallite tips.

Habitat: Mid reef slopes exposed to strong currents.

Abundance: Uncommon.

Similar species: Acropora hemprichii , Acropora striata , Acropora tumida , Acropora verweyi
