The average full grown acan lord mouth is about 1/2-2/3 of an inch across and on that sight what you see is what you get for everything I'm pretty sure

How many can you get per tank because these are all incredibly tempting

I mean that can vary hugely depending on frag size, aquascaping, lighting, and coral placement but they can be set pretty much side by side if you aren't worried about growing them into large colonies for a carpet of mixed acans which in working on now lol. Id say the lords can reach about a half inch with expansion and tentacles reach

Awesome! The carpet effect would be great! I have a little ledge on some Rock that would be perfect for them

Ya why not Nu-nu? Medium light low to medium flow and spread fairly quickly. They can also handle parameter fluctuations much better then most lps

Well mainly because of the price of some acans, if you dont do it right it ends up being a pretty expensive mistake. I havent jumped up to acans yet, maybe in a few months ill try.

If you want reallyyyy easy corals get zoas, paly, mushrooms, etc

Ya but if that's the arguement then same with zoas. I know you've seen the "high end" zoas and palys. You can find great color acans for cheap. Got two for $5 and another for free so I don't think that's to bad and from experience they really are a very forgiving coral
