Acanthastrea lordhowensis

By: emasis | Tags: | Comments: 0

This type of Acan can readily devour small meaty foods, and if you happen to see it opened up like these pictures, seize the opportunity to drizzle some mini mysis over the polyps.  They'll capture the food like an anemone and consume it completely. Acans can get quite puffy, and grow nicely in a reef system.
