what corals near acan?

I just picked up a good sized acan (37 heads) and I have a couple of holes fairly close to it that I think I can squeeze in a couple more corals. Can you suggest a coral that is safe to put near it and has medium to high lighting requirements? I have T5 HO lighting and the spots are mid-tank.

And before you ask.....oh yes there will be pictures! It's in the bucket acclimating as we speak.

TIA!

FantasyReef Databases-Viewing item "Acanthastrea Lordhowensis"

Is it like any of these?

I have a large Aussie Acan lord colony in my tank. I suggest keeping it away from any other sweeping coral. It will do fine around zoas, GSP, etc., but keep distance from most other LPS corals. FWIW...it sounds like the collection of Aussie corals is going to be extremely restictive for a while so do your best to grow the colony out. I have seen several med. sized colonies go for $300-$800 each. They may become the new Jap. micros as far as demand goes.

it is a 'Acanthastrea Lordowensis'

It really opened up later in the evening and is doing well. Of course I saw another colony on the Drs site that I really like. Rats!!

Most places say that it needs it`s own space so I would have it about 6 inches from anybody else.

Ok-thank you for the info. This is a strange question but.....

I'm safe to place other small frags of acans near it right?
