Placement: Bottom to Middle
The Acan Coral adds an exciting coloration to any aquarium! This popular large polyp stony (LPS) coral demonstrates the exceptional range of vivid coloration. In the reef aquarium, Acanthastrea are hardy and fast growing, tolerating a wide variety of conditions including both low and moderate lighting and moderate water currents. Though tolerant of a wide range of aquarium conditions, the undemanding Acan Coral will thrive in established reef aquariums with stable conditions.
Be aware that Acanthastrea are voracious nocturnal predators and competitively extrude mesenterial filaments and digest organisms within reach. Care must be taken in determining the placement and distance between Acan Coral colonies. Target feed minced meaty foods and zooplankton for best growth and frag recovery time. The use of a quality protein skimmer helps maintain water quality and combat the effects of heavy feeding.
