Husbandry

“From Veron, J.E.N. Corals of the World.”

Anacropora pillai
Veron, 2000

Characters: Colonies sprawl over the substrate and have dead bases so that they fall apart if disturbed. This is the smallest Anacropora, with most branches less than 3 millimetres thick. They are always contorted and tapered. Sometimes they are irregularly fused. Sub-branches form by equal division. Corallites are conical and project up to 1.5 millimetres from the branch surface. Corallites seldom form spines.

Colour: Cream or pale blue.

Habitat: May cover extensive areas on lower reef slopes, especially in turbid water.

Abundance: Locally common.

Similar species: Anacropora matthai

Source reference: Veron (2000). Taxonomic reference: Veron (2002).
