Captive breeding / propagation
The offspring of Acropora intermedia are possible. Unfortunately, the number of offspring is not large enough to cover the demand of the trade. If you are interested in Acropora intermedia, please ask your dealer for offspring. If you already own Acropora intermedia, try breeding yourself. This will help to improve the availability of offspring in the trade and to conserve natural stocks.
Very special thanks for the first three photos of Acropora intermedia to Dr. David Obura from Kenya, Africa.
Acropora intermedia is found in most subtidal reef areas in a depth range of 0 - 18 meters.
