Quick Acan Question

I just picked up a 4 headed frag of "Aussie Superman Acanthastrea Lordhowensis" Can I add more than 1 type of acans on a rock or should I just let that 1 colony grow out over the rock. I really wanted my "Acan Rock" to be different colors.

I may be wrong but I believe you can only put acan lords next to lords so as long as its another lord it shouldn't be a battle ground

I wouldn't try to mix acan and acan lords. Though related, not the same coral.

Acan lords can go next to other lords. Do you already have echinata?
