Acans

So I'm thinking of putting some acan lords in my 20G nano. Firstly, are they a good nano coral. Others in the tank are frogspawn, torch, duncans, and zoas. LiveAquaria makes it sound like they will eat anything within reach at night. I don't want to wake up to no fish or corals...

Yes they're great nano corals, I have 4 in my tank. No they will not eat fish/inverts. My cleaner shrimp climbs all over them and they retract back in. They couldn't catch a fish if they tried

Nice, thanks (I can see them in your pic).

Surprisingly enough, the wife loves that piece so it's a go

Sweet! Mine are always hungry as well, they are gluttons. Feed them plenty of mysis and they will grow like crazy. Well they grow well with just light but feeding definitely helps these guys IMO
