The third pic of the acans are from Cornbred. They are Blue Panther Chameleon Acans. I guess they are high grade? I won the bid at $199.. Guess no one else wanted them. I was the only bidder.

Great pieces Zach. Not sure what to tell you for placement, etc. only Acans I have kept alive (for 3 years now) are a colony of Orange Crush Acans. Started out the size of a quarter now the size of a baseball. Placement was bottom of a 90 gallon with a 4 bulb Tek T5 fixture, Ecotech MP-40 and Koralia 1450.

So from reading up a little and your previous experience I think bottom placement might be the best.

Also today i noticed an open brain, that I purchased a few days ago, Has not opened up fully since i introduced him into the tank. Since this morning some of the skeleton has been poking through the flesh. I moved him into a little shadier spot thinking maybe it was the lighting? ANY Suggestions?

I usually dip my coral before putting the pieces in my tank. I believe the product is CoralRx. Ever since I started that, the corals have adjusted much better.

Yeah, you can do it after you add them. I do it occasionally if I see a piece not doing too well.
