Husbandry

Acropora yongei
Veron and Wallace, 1984

From Aims

Characters: Colonies consist of dense thickets of short cylindrical branches. They are frequently over 2 metres across and may form extensive single species stands. Axial corallites are exsert and tubular. Radial corallites are uniform in size and tubular, with flaring lower lips.

Similar Species: Acropora haimei which has primarily upright branches and corallites of irregular size. Acropora tumida and A. striata have similar growth-forms; the latter also has similar corallites except that radial corallites are irregular with less conspicuously flaring lower lips. See also A. donei
