    That sounds like they actually grow fairly fast! Sps grow so slowly but i love the colorations! Since this acan is very valuable every polyp counts! Besides, i haven't ever seen one with such wonderful coloration!! I was lucky to snag this specimen and i probably will use it as a base colony and do a few frags to sell.... It will be so cool to get this colony to cover my live rock in all my is semi-aggressive- do you know more about combatability with anemonies and other corals with acans? Do they have a special dislike to anything in particular? Is your brine shrimp frozen or live? How about the mysis? Talka soon,cindy

    Hello! Acan is doing very well! I'm hopefully splitting up the colony for frags this week. My mom just came home from spinal surgery on friday so i'm hoping to get it done in between caring for her.thanks for the info about sawing up the colony... I have done that for sps and it works well.. I have also used a dremel drill, it works well but takes a bit o control. Sheetmetal shears work too- it is a concern for me to get in between the polyps without damage to the rest of the colony... Do you have an estimate on growing time? Per polyp est? I have studied it in several of my coral books but more experiences would be nice.. Sometimes different people have different experiences so all info is great! Thanks and i hope you're doing fine.

    Yes, an aussie rainbow acan lord... I haven't seen another like it, psychedelic, isn't it? I'm fragging a few polyps from it, it has 65 polyps so i hope i can make the frags a good size...perhaps 5 polyps each, but i will see when i get started fragging. I want to keep the main colony fairly large if i can... Any info on these would be apreciated as i usually do sps and softies/ breeding clownfish and anemonies, so i don't have alot of experience with this particular coral..thanks for the nice comments!

    yeah he is very healthy and I have had him and my scooter blenny for about 7 days now and they seem to be doing very well. I put the colt coral in about 5 days ago and it's not dead, but it still hasn't attached itself and it keeps wanting to float away from where i put it. Any idea how long it should take for it to attatch itself?

    Yes, that is Toby, my perpetual two year old who will outlive me. She's only 22 and I'm already 51. :(
