I was told it is an acan by the guy at the lfs and he said it was not doing so well. I bought it at a discount and brought it home and it's doing better tha. It was there. It was half under an egg crate rejected. I haven't seen any feeding tentacles at night or during the day. At night the polyp tends to shrink significantly and comes out only that far during daylight hours. Thanks for the possible identification!

Depending on the size I think its a lobo IMO.

Close, but after seeing many of these perish, it was an easy ID.

Acan

Lobo

the whole skeleton on top is the size of a quarter. I'm leaning towards acan because it's more round. Thanks!

Best side photo I could get with my iPhone. I'm amazed at how bad he used to look and how awesome some spot feedings made him.
