Acropora corals are the most popular SPS corals in saltwater aquariums. They occur in all imaginable colors and grow to beautiful colonies if well cared for. Acropora corals from aquaculture can differ considerably in color and shape from their conspecifics in natural coral reefs and are usually much more vibrant. One more reason to go for aquacultured corals.
Care of Acropora corals
In the reef tank Acropora require a strong, changing and laminar flow. Finely branched specimens like diffuse flow patterns, while thick-branched Acropora also tolerate a more direct flow. Position Acropora at the top of your reef structure and leave some space for other, and most importantly, potentially nettling corals.
