    Hi to all,

    Do any of you currently have this coral , and is the care for this specific species more difficult/different to general Acan care ?

    (Acanthastrea Echinata)

    I have a this acan...not big about 6 heads...are they heads not sure what u call sections of an Acan. Also called a Rainbow Acan if I am not mistaken. Not sure about its care from the other species...I have another colony not sure what species it is, but its different to the rainbow and its not a lord either, but it seems to be doing well, apparently most acans from what I have read need medium flow with medium lighting.

    Where u can get one...well our LFS has one small frag left I reckon it will cost a lot but will find out for u when I go there this afternoon. Else there is a guy in Natal who sells frags of them quite regularly.

    The Acan is sold at the LFS, apparently the owner has some colonies at home he is growing for fragging so will keep u posted on that.

    I actually fragged a small piece off of the big colony a little while ago, gave it to Grant (Prodigy) as far as I know its still alive :p
