Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Veron & Wallace, 1984

Very special thanks for the photo to Ed Lovell, Fiji!

"Colonies are digitate, with only slightly tapering branches. Axial corallites are approximately twice the size of radial corallites. Radial corallites are short, tubular and outward facing, with distinctive wide openings.

Colour: Pale brown or cream, occasionally with blue branch tips.

Habitat: Reef lagoons.

Abundance: Usually rare.

Similar species: Acropora arabensis"
