I had a red variety I bought when I was down in Baltimore several years ago when I was testifying for a client in court. It was really nice, until a fungus showed up months later and started destroying it. I switched it into the other tank that I had running at the time and wasn't enough to save it, even with a coralrx dip. I look under my starlight blue acro I have growing in my tank and...color me surprised it is making a comeback. Interesting stuff with how hardy it can be. Thankfully, not as invasive as it could be...but then again my tank isn't as friendly towards some soft/polyps as it is others.

That's pretty sweet, never seen a red variety. It hasn't overgrown anything in my tank but it is bugging me lol.

If I have time before work tomorrow, I'll try to snap a picture and post it in my build thread. I've fallen behind in updates lately. Pretty neat stuff. It was mislabeled and I talked the store into selling it for the 'gsp' price rather than the more expensive price for whatever it was labeled as...since I've forgotten with time.

Parameters are in check too im assuming? How's the flow? My acan lords did ok until I switched over to the mp40's and the flow changed up drastically.

Yeah params are fine. All my acros are really starting to put on nice growth. Zoas look great, euphyllia an my Duncan look awesome. My other 3 acans are puffy, it's just this one that doesn't get puffy as much. It is on my sand. I'm thinking its the mp10 as I have it running at about 70% in reef crest.

Acan is looking a bit puffier but still kinda shrunk. In other news my serpent star decided to play a fun game of drag my other acan under my hammer coral...:/. Got him out and they both seem to be fine
