Acan flow

Hey all, I'm about 5 months re-into reefkeeping after being out for about 12 years.

After taking my time with letting the tank mature and keeping levels stable I've got a few new LPS & softies going on.

Grabbed my first little acan colony and am wondering about the flow. Today is day 2 after acclimation on Saturday and they're looking well. Photos attached of acclimation day1 and today. Included a video to show what they're dealing with.

Thanks for any input you can offer.

Low to medium flow is best. I have a pretty high pulse on my tank and it loves it.

I find my acans aren’t to picky with flow. They don’t like to get blasted but they can handle more flow then some other lps like euphylia. U will be able to tell if they aren’t happy because they won’t open as much as they should.

Some day's I do high flow other days really low flow. I have Acan's, Lobophylia, Euphylia, Duncan all thriving. Mother nature never gives the same flow every day so I try to do the same..

Bringing back a 12g JBJ from some serious neglect...

Current Tank Info: JBJ 12g
