View Full Version : Acan receding???

09/08/2017, 06:44 PM
I'm new I have a 32g biocube which has been fully cycled btw and I have 3 fish and 2 corals. One corals of which I'm worried about. It's an acan coral I got from saltcritters.com last week. I can't tell if it's receding from the skeleton. But during the day it's puffed up and has it's feeding tentacles out all the time. I feed it one mysis shrimp and it gobbles it up. Any help would be greatly appreciated

after only a week its probably stressed still. feed it, keep it low to mod light, low to mod flow .

Ok sounds good, I'm going to post a couple pics of it during the day so you can see as well. And btw do I have it in to much flow? It has a nice jiggle to it and the flow isn't consistently pushing it in one direction.

It doesn't look too bad, doesn't look to be receding. It just doesn't look puffed up.

Hi the pics were taken at night so the acan was sucked up. But during the day its all puffed up and has it's feeding tentacles out and accepts food. I tried to put a vid of it eating in but it wouldn't let me.
Here are some picks of it during the day (with all old photos you've already seen)
And btw there are lots of red dots all over my live rock. Is that a good thing? I included pucks of it to

Your acans look perfectly fine. The red spots are more than likely coraline algae.
