Earthbound Acan

Acanthastrea (or Acans for short) are a colorful and popular coral imported mainly from Australia and Indonesia. Relatively recently several members of this Genus were reclassified. Acanthastrea lordhowensis was moved over to into Micromussa and Acanthastrea bowerbanki was reclassified into Homophyllia. Still, the hobby regularly still refers to both of these corals as Acanthastrea.

Acanthastrea/Micromussa/Homophyllia are highly sought-after for their amazing color and exotic patterns. As a part of our aquaculture efforts, we propagate as many of these Large Polyp Stony (LPS) corals as possible.

Like many LPS corals, Acans like to be fed and once trained extend their tentacles in search of food for much of the day. We also have found that Acanthastrea can change color dramatically. In our experience, Acans tend to develop the best colors under T5 lighting as compared to LED.
