Acan Brain Coral
 

In the reef aquarium, Acanthastrea are incredibly hardy and fast growing, tolerating a wide variety of conditions including both low and moderate lighting and moderate water currents. They make ideal candidates for fragging at home since they have very distinct corallites (less risk of collateral damage!), amazing adaptability to lighting conditions, and rapid growth rates. Though tolerant of a wide range of aquarium conditions, the undemanding Acan Brain Coral will thrive in established reef aquariums with stable conditions.

Be aware that Acanthastrea are voracious nocturnal predators and competitively extrude mesenterial filaments and digest organisms within reach. Great care must be taken in determining the placement and distance between Acan Brain Coral colonies. Target feed minced meaty foods and zooplankton for best growth and frag recovery time. The use of a quality protein skimmer helps maintain water quality and combat the effects of heavy feeding.
