Acropora corals are the largest, most contributing coral for reef formations in the world. In fact, between the Acropora and Montipora corals, they make up one-third of all reef building coral species. Their light skeletons, high metabolism, and specialized ‘axial’ corallites result in fast growth, allowing them to quickly overcome their neighbors.

Origin

The genus Acropora has close to 400 nominal species with nearly half that many described. The majority of these corals are found in Pacific reefs, but 3 species are found in the Atlantic. The most common name for Acropora corals is the popular “staghorn coral”. There are many other forms that Acroporas take as well. Other forms are shaped like tables, plates, columns, ridges, bushes, fingers, cat’s paw coral, bottlebrush coral, or clustering corals. The table or tabletop Acroporas are some of the most elegant and sought after forms for very large aquariums. Yet they are also some of the most difficult Acroporas to keep.

Acropora species have been propagated in captivity, thus helping to conserve wild populations in the world’s reefs. In the wild they are the most tolerant of water temperatures, salinity changes, water movement, and lighting, but in captivity they can prove to be very difficult to keep. In the ocean, they are the first to arrive at a reef and spread quickly. Other corals that arrive later, then tend to move in.

Pristine water conditions must be maintained.  Doing water changes of  5% once a week will bring about amazing results.  Keep the nitrate levels low. Acroporas are best kept in a small polyp stony (SPS) tank with only other SPS corals. They are not hard to keep growing healthy as long as maintenance of calcium, strontium and trace elements are kept up with.
