Acanthastrea lordhowensis corals are both hardy and undemanding of the aquarist. Acanthastrea lordhowensis corals are a favorite for the reef tank. From beginners all the way to the advanced aquarist. Colors range from Cherry Reds, to purple, green, orange, blue, rust, brown, pale gray, to pale tan. With a good supply of Tri Color Acans available we guarantee every Acanthastrea lordhowensis you order will be different.

Difficulty Easy to care for, making them an excellent choice for the beginner.

Aggressiveness A semi aggressive coral, Acan's are nocturnal predators and competitively extrude feeder filaments and digest organisms within reach, so be careful with placement and distance between colonies.

Water-flow It requires slow to medium water flow.

Lighting It requires low to moderate lighting (PAR 50-150). T5's or LED's can all grow Aquacultured Acanthastrea and lords when the proper PAR levels are provided. Do not use Metal Halides since the they will not fully open. We recommend a 14-20K color spectrum for best coloration.

Tank Recommendations Provide low to moderate light, as strong light will prevent the polyps from opening fully. Water flow should be low as well. Like other members of the Mussidae family, the polyps tentacles come out at night to feed.

Diet and Feeding For best growth and frag recovery time target feed minced meaty foods, liquid micro-plankton and zoo plankton, frozen mysis shrimp or brine shrimp.
