That also looks like a brain (favite) to me. Am I wrong? My acan heads are completely separate from one another. This seems like they share edges.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
I'm not saying that your specimen has anything wrong with it at all, but be watchful for acan lords that are somewhat shriveled in the sales pictures. I have seen some sort of infection kill off entire colonies. some say it's parasites, while others say it's bacterial, but whatever it is, there is no cure to date.

They should be full and extended, not all squished-looking and shrunken.

Currently the acan isn't very happy. My blue legged hermits are curious about it. It has pulled itself back and showing its skeleton some. Hoping there is improvement by the time I come home from work.

Still not showing signs of recovery. Crabs are all over it, mostly skeleton.

I had a similar situation with mine. One colony was doing great while the other was showing signs of receding and had hermit crabs perched on it all the time. That lasted for about a month and it bounced back and has new heads growing now. Probably doesn't help, but I figured I would share...

Well, I'll remain hopeful. Hasn't been in there very long. Just slightly fearful after having a couple corals from my LFS die in 24 hours after being drip acclimated for an hour.
