Captive breeding / propagation

The offspring of Acanthastrea brevis are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Acanthastrea brevis, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Acanthastrea brevis, 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

Infos form AIMS:
Characters: Colonies are mostly submassive. Corallites are cerioid to subplocoid with moderately thin walls. Septa are thin and widely spaced. Larger septa have very long upwardly projecting teeth giving colonies a spiny appearance. Colonies are usually not fleshy.

Husbandry know-how of owners

Chrysokoll am 23.01.06#1
Mein Brevis stammt aus Tonga und sieht so ziemlich genau wie die abgebildete aus. Die einzelnen Polypen sind etwa 1 - 1,5 cm gross und nicht sehr fleischig. Nachts fahren meine Brevis Mesenterialfilamente (bis 5 cm) aus und hat schon eine offensichtlich zu nahe stehende Koralle zerstört. Die Mesenterialfilamente kriechen auf den Boden (Fels, Algen) umher. Sie werden, sobald Licht auf sie fällt sofort wieder eingezogen. Die Polypen sind relativ einfach zu Füttern und schleimen zu kleines Futter nicht ein. Keine starke Strömung und kein starkes Licht. Vermehrt sich extratentakulär.
