Captive breeding / propagation

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

Husbandry

Characters: Colonies are solid encrusting plates sometimes over one metre diameter. Plates are covered by corallites of irregular sizes and shapes, sometimes with a tendency to form short branchlets. Axial, incipient axial and radial corallites all intergrade and all corallites are smooth and rounded.

Colour: Pale brown, commonly with pink or blue margins.

Habitat: Shallow reef environments, especially reef flats exposed to strong wave action.

Abundance: Common in Indonesia.

Similar species: Acropora cuneata , Acropora minuta


Synmonym: Acropora crateriformis
