Acans

How close together can you place different colonies of acans. I know some can be more aggressive than others, but I would like to place two different colors of acan frags on the same LR. Any troubles ahead when they start growing together?

Thanks in advance of any advice.

you can touch them together. they won't hurt each other at all.
you can only put lords together with other lords, or echinatas with echinatas...you cannot touch lords to echinatas.

ID:	35325Thanks Doug. And while I'm at it, I'll post of shot of my three headed beauty. Not sure if it has an "official name" for it's color, but I think it's a lord, right? Hard to get the colors as they appear, but it's kind of light maroon, white stripes with a mint green mouth.
