Green Horrida Acropora Video Stock Footage

Acropora horrida forms in colonies, which are mainly open branched. It is light blue, dark blue, light yellow, or brown in colour, with white or pale blue polyps. The main branches contain an unorganised structure of branchlets, based on examples in water showing turbidity. However, in clear water, the branchlets are short, making the structure appear bristly. The corallites are rough and irregularly placed, and tentacles enlarge during the day. There are no similar species within genus Acropora. It is found in marine, tropical, shallow reefs, mainly in turbid water near fringing reefs. It also occurs in shallow lagoons and sand slopes, and is found at depths of between 5 and 20 m (16 and 66 ft). It is believed to survive for more than ten years, and reaches maturity at between three and eight. It is composed of aragonite (calcium carbonate). Learn more about Green Horrida Acropora
