Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Infos from AIMS:

Characters: Colonies are digitate and usually small. The size and appearance of branches depends on degree of exposure to wave action, but are always short and closely compacted. Colonies exposed to strong wave action have pyramid-shaped branchlets. Corallites are irregular in size, those on colonies on reef slopes are tubular, those on reef flat colonies are more immersed. Axial corallites are small and sometimes indistinguishable.

Radial corallites are irregular in size, and are sometimes arranged in rows down the sides of branches.
