My New Acro

I went to the LFS yesterday because they get their new shipments in every Tuesday. Their loads of new stock and lack of tank space landed me this Acro for a whopping $30

It is about 6" in diameter.

That size for $30... NICE! Are the polyps coming out yet? Is it white in color?

I haven't seen the polyps out yet. Kinda been busy. It is snow white in color. Sorry, I have a cheap camera to take pics with. It doesn't show how bright the colors actually are.

I know that there are nice white acros that do exist. But snow white and no polyps, can = dead. Thats probably not your case, but just keep an eye out for poyp extension just in case.

Maybe snow white is not accurate. The stags are light peach at the base, the stages are a white-off white and many of the highest tips have a sky blue tint. I haven't had alot of time with this one but will keep an eye out for the polyps.

Thanks for the heads up.

btw - do the acro's polyps tend to come out during the day or night?

Mine are out day and night, but I would say even more so at night. Peach base and sky blue tips sounds real nice!
