Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Riegl, 1995

Very special thanks for the first photo of Acropora mossambica to Dr. Paul Muir from the Queensland Museum of Australia.

Dr. Paul Muir is the Collection Manager/ Researcher for corals at the Museum of Tropical Queensland (MTQ), Townsville and has research interests in mesophotic (deep reef) corals, coral biogeography, coral taxonomy and marine microbiology. Paul worked with the renowned coral researcher and former Principal Scientist, Dr. Carden Wallace for many years at the Museum, assuming responsibility for the large coral collection at MTQ following Dr Wallace’s retirement.

Acropora mosambica is fortunately not listed at IUCN Rec List of of Threatened Species!

Similar species: Acropora nasuta, but Acropora mossambica has large axial corallites!
