Hi guys question. Do favia and acan extend their growth area or do they stay the size that is fragged, also do they need to be placed a certain way for growth etc...

They do grow but very slowly.
If you place them in a way to optimise exposure to light (most of the time this would be flat), feed them, make sure that there are no other corals that are close enough to sting them and fish that bury them in substrate then they should be fine and grow (ever so slowly).

Given enough time and stable conditions they will definitely grow. Here is a pic and comment I saw on Facebook a few days ago...

Acan's ready for feeding, mad to think it was only 8 heads when I got it lol

Did the person say how long they had it? Would be interesting to see what time frame it took to grow that size :)
