Acan Brain Corals are easy to care for
Acan Brain corals have many endearing qualities. They can tolerate low to medium lighting, so high-end lights are not required.
If the aquarium is brightly lit, they should be placed on the bottom and/or sides of the tank where lighting is less intense and if your lights are adjustable, they can be turned down when adding Acans and ramped back up over a period of a couple weeks. Moderate flow is recommended.
Acan brain corals are hardy, fast growing and easy to frag making them a favorite for propagators.
One caution is that these nocturnal predators will sting other coral that is placed too close, so allow some space between them and neighboring coral.
Acan brain coral colonies have multiple skeletal cups called corallite. The polyp secretes calcium carbonite in the form of aragonite to build these cups, so as with other LPS corals, it is imperative that proper calcium levels are maintained. Target feeding with zoo plankton results in faster growth.
