Acan Lord
 

The Acan Lord Coral (Acanthastrea lordhowensis), also known as 'The Lord', is the most colorful of the Acanthastrea genus. This LPS Hard Coral, native to Australia, comes in many different colors from red, purple, green, orange, blue, rust, brown and pale gray, to pale tan. The Acan Lord Howe is a great coral and is very easy to care for. They are not at all demanding and they will readily grow new polyps. They do not need to be fed since they use the dissolved organics in the tank for nourishment. Try to avoid housing with soft corals as they do not do as well in their presence, and some will die if the softy population is too high. Provide a low water movement, and do not use Metal Halides since the Acan Lord will not fully open.
