The Red & Green Acan Lord (Acanthastrea lordhowensis) is the offical star of Christmas Colors. with a green outer coloration with a brilliant red mouth. This LPS (large polyp stony) will dress up any reef tank for the holidays.

The Acanthastrea genus is a large family of corals with many variations and color patterns. Ranging from Pink, Purple, Blue and Green to Red, Yellow & Orange plus variations with many rainbow morphs in between.

Aussie Acans are aggressive feeders after the lights go out and sweeper tentacles can reach over an inch out from the body of the coral in attempt to catch food. Placement of corals within the aquarium anticipating this natural predatory behavior will save colonies from coral wars for space and food.

Aussie Acans are found on shallow water but typically in silty areas where light is not as bright and penetrating due to the sediment in the water. They typically a larger corallite structure ranging approx 10mm in diameter with small lobes surrounding the septa.

The Acanthastrea lordhowensis & Acanthastrea echinata are the most common Acans in the aquarium trade. They do well in captivity and grow fast provided that they are fed well. However when target feeding any coral it is imperative to utilize a good skimmer to export waste and leftover food.

Aussie Acans are found on shallow water but typically in silty areas where light is not as bright and penetrating due to the sediment in the water. They typically a larger corallite structure ranging approx 10mm in diameter with small lobes surrounding the septa.

Acan Lords are easy to frag as their well defined corallites are road maps for cutting. They can tolerate many extremes in lighting however for best coloration we have found that less intense light works best (HO T5 lights) as compared to Metal Halides.

My single-polyp acan frag is about the size of the end of my index finger and has some very striking colors. This will make an impressive colony. Thanks, Reefs2Go!
