Acropora (Scleractinian) Stony Corals - Part 2

The largest of the stony corals in terms of coral reef formations, and a very popular coral for reef aquariums.

Certain species of fish, crabs and snails will feed on acropora. Others will find protection in a symbiotic relationship with the coral. Temperature changes are not tolerated as bleaching, tissue recession and death normally follow. It is best to deter from purchasing acropora if you have a newly established tank since mature and stable tank conditions are favorable with a heavy dose of strontium and calcium. Anytime you have fluctuations in your water, you run the risk of stressing out your acropora coral, not to mention the other livestock in your tank. The purchase of captive bred species is a better investment than their wild caught relatives as you have a better chance of success with the farm raised varieties. Also, the brown hued varieties of acropora will afford you the best chance of survival in a captive environment. Unfortunately, acropora is susceptible to almost every known coral malody, including white band disease, rapid tissue necrosis, black band disease, bleaching and tissue recession. The maintenance of your water at adequate and stable levels along with a strong water flow and intense lighting will suffice for many of the more difficult species of acropora.

Some of the more hardy and easier acropora species to keep in a reef aquarium setting are the bottle brush, bushy and cluster forms. Again due to the large amount of acropora species available, I will list just a few of the more common and hardy species. Millepora, Nasuta, Verweyi, Tortuosa, Granulosa and Caroliniana are some of the more hardy species to try if you appreciate this form of coral.

Tabletop, finger, branching and columnar species are much more difficult to keep even with optimal conditions. Stag horn, Yongei, Nobilis, Palifera, Cytherea, Hyacinthus and Digitifera are a few examples of the more demanding species that should only be attempted by a knowledgeable and experienced aquarist.
A little hint, to help you as many times acropora species are given a variety of names due to the closeness in skeletal and tissue structure and unless you have expertise in this you will not be able to tell the difference between many different species. The best type of acropora is those that have duller coloration and fine branches. The thicker branch forms are more demanding due to water flow and lighting especially.

Acropora is highly reproductive and usually reach sexual maturity at age 3-5 with a branch diameter of 4-7 cm. Position of your acropora is important with in your tanks over all layout. Acropora's ability to grow quickly will create problems in due time as they will overgrow neighboring corals possibly injuring them due to their toxic mucus. They will surely kill most other forms of coral that come in contact with it.

Yes, acropora is not for everyone, and it is notoriously more demanding than most other types of coral. However, as I mentioned, their are certain species that you could try to keep in your tank as many of these are desirable and make a great addition and a diverse one at that for your reef biotope.
