Overview

The Tabling Acropora Coral in this spectacular color morph is sure to be a treasured addition. Green-colored branches accentuate beautifully the architectural splendor of reef building Acropora corals. The Tabling Acropora Coral makes a noteworthy specimen in a low-nutrient reef aquarium system and a true gem for any collector or reef enthusiast.

The ideal conditions for the Acropora coral is an established reef aquarium with bright lighting provided by preferably intense metal halides. Acropora coral can also thrive under multiple T-5 or compact fluorescent lamps if placed high in the aquarium. Under the right conditions, the growth rate of the Acropora coral is much more rapid than most other corals found in an established reef aquarium.

To maximize the growth rate of your Tabling Acropora Coral, it is imperative to maintain a high pH, alkalinity and calcium levels, and to keep phosphate and nitrate levels as close to zero as possible. If conditions are ideal, it can also be cultured and grown into a new colony from living fragments or broken pieces.

In addition to high lighting condition and near pristine water quality, the Anthocercis Acropora Coral prefers strong, intermittent water flow within the aquarium. This is best accomplished with a wavemaker and multiple powerheads. For continued good health, the Tabling Acropora Coral requires the addition of calcium, strontium, iodine, magnesium and trace elements.

The symbiotic algae zooxanthellae hosted within the Tabling Acropora Coral supplies the coral a majority of its nutrition. However, it will benefit from the addition of various types of phyto and zooplankton.
