Husbandry

Acropora loripes
Brook, 1892

Description:

Colonies have many shapes varying from upright bushes to thick plates. There is a continuous range of shape and size between axial and radial corallites; both may be tubular to nearly spherical, with very thick walls. Tubular axial corallites often have no radial corallites on one side and pocket-like radial corallites on the other. All corallites are smooth and rounded.
Color: Usually pale blue or brown.


Similar Species: Acropora rosaria and A. appressa. Acropora caroliniana and A. granulosa have more elongate axial corallites. See also A. maryae.
