Birds nest is a great coral...but personally, I'd avoid putting them in a nano. I'm not recalling the size of your tank, but in my 55 I have one that has just become overwhelming and a small frag of another than is going to do the same in a year's time. Great coral, but can easily become a weed...literally! I have fish breaking pieces off of the large colony by accident and these pieces starting to grow and encrust themselves where they land.

It does get large quickly but it's so easy to frag I feel like it can be trimmed. I have 3 varieties in my 20 and frag the green every couple weeks to keep it in check.

I've seen a few really nice frags at my LFS and could probably easily sell frags to a local dealer if mine get too big. But, I'm going to wait and let the acans get used to the tank before getting anything else.

Will do. The folks at work think I'm nuts for taking time off to get them into the tank.

The lights won't be on when I put them in the tank in the morning, but I'll take some pix tomorrow evening and post them up.

Not bad after 20hrs in a dark box

Acan lords do not have a far reach. The ones that you don't want too close to other corals are echinatas. They are much more aggressive. Those you have there can be an inch from other corals, providing the other coral isn't aggressive. I would not want a torch or hammer bumping into my acans.
