Acropora (Acropora sp.) are one of the most popularSPS (Small Polyp Stony) corals in the hobby. Their bright and unique colors combined with the number of available species makes them sought after. Acros are native to the Pacific Ocean, Indian Ocean, Red Sea, and the Caribbean, but they are also available as aquacultured species. When it comes to tank placement, they prefer moderate to high lighting and high flow areas. They are very sensitive and susceptible to RTN (Rapid Tissue Necrosis) and other infections so maintaining good water quality is paramount to their success. Due to this sensitivity, it is important to test the reef tank regularly, dosing, and performing water changes as necessary. They will eat zooplankton, phytoplankton, fish waste, and commercial coral foods in addition to utilizing the nutrients they receive from symbiotic zooxanthellae they contain in their cells. Prior to adding them, make sure to dip them to prevent unwanted or unseen pests from entering the tank. Acclimation should be gradual allowing them to get used to the new lighting and water parameters.
