Captive breeding / propagation

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

Info

Infos from AIMS:
Characters: Colonies are tables, usually side-attached, with generally horizontal radiating anastomosing branches which may form an almost solid plate. There is usually no development of vertical branchlets.

Similar Species: Acropora plumosa. Acropora glauca from far southern localities may have a very similar growth-form. See also A. tutuilensis and A. downingi.
