Ultra Green Acanthastrea Echinata (Acan Brain Coral) WYSIWYG
Acans generally have large corallites (8-15mm) with small teeth or lobes on their septa, as well as well-developed columellae.
In the wild, they're found mostly in shallow water to about 20m, often in protected areas like lagoons, forming colonies up to several meters across.
Great care must be taken in determining the placement and distance between Acan Brain 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.
