I've never really been a fan of the Acan, but you guys are making me rethink that position. Maybe when I do the 210...Very nice corals though!!

You'll have lots of room in the 210. A small colony here and there would be nice an colorful. Just keep the frag tank full of acros though!

be careful not to have another coral bump into them though. they will eat the flesh off of it faster than you can say "yikes, my 100 dollar frag!"

i lost half of an ORA green polyp birdsnest when it was knocked over by my algae blenny, into a lord colony. it must have been lying against it for about an hour when i found it. it was pure white skeleton by then.

I've got a quite a way to go before my single polyps turn into a colony. So far only my turbo snails have been able to over my acros. One of them recently knocked one off it's plug and I had to re-glue it.

i give them an assortment. sometimes misis, sometimes cyclo-peeze(the frozen type), and sometimes i give them a home-made mixture(shrimp, scallops, clams...whatever i could get from the supermarket, all blended together)

Do they require additional feeding or does it just help promote growth?

It helps promote growth. I don't generally target feed them. I just make sure the tank is fed.

Agree... they don't need them, but they sure seem to grow quick when you do spot feed them. I give mine a squirt of mysis/cyclopeeze once a week when I'm feeding the fish. Feeding during the day is just fine - they'll open up and devour stuff really quick.
