    Default My lil Acan?

    I got this lil Acan about 3 months ago. Along with 2 others which died within 24hrs of placing them in my tank. Although this one is hanging on, it still refuses to expand. I will see the lil sweepers at night. I've moved it around several times and still it remains *pinched* looking.

    Is there anything I should do for it?

    Looks pretty good from what i see on phone some of ours are fluffier then others maybe where it came from originaly I'd imagine there's same kind of Acans (lords) that polyps are lil different when it comes to this. Kinda like zoas can be different polyp size. I may be wrong just what I've seen in our tank in different Acans of the lord family. And the conclusion I've came up with seeing that their happy n popping babies in our tank.

    Looks like mine do after the halides kick off. As Steve said I've got some that inflate more than others.

    It sounds ok to me. I wonder why the other two died so quick. Does it eat if fed?

    Yup she eats-at around 1-2am like now!(feeling like I got a new born babe) when she opens up. Other then that she stays pinched looking all the time. I want her to look all puffy and purddy!!

    As I sit here watching my angel I now know why my lil Acan remains pinched-UGH-out of all the corals in my tank this is the one she's chosen to pick on-so I'll let her-just to keep her away from everything else

    I know right~well I took the acan off the plug and have stuck it into a little crevice in the LR kind of hidden but still getting light and flow~it's funny cause the angel keeps going to the place where it used to be looking for it~now I'll just watch and hope~otherwise it's gonna be bye bye angel


    DANG IT!! She found it and pulled it right out of the crevice...grrrrr.
