    Default Acan't tell what this is

    I inherited some corals in need of rehab the other day and I'm starting to get the feeling that what I was told was an Acan is really a Mini Scolly. I've only read an few articles about them as they seem to be a "newer" coral and have never seen in person so I'm not too confidant in my. What do you think Acan or Mini Scolly or something else?

    It's still pretty bleached but it's slowly getting some color back.

    perhaps a button scoly, or cynarina AKA meat coral
    It takes a long long time to build a coral reef. Step by step the reefs survive on partnerships. And the most important partners are you and I.
