I have had a few Acans for about 5 months. None have grown at all. I am not sure if they are even alive. I run LED's and have them on the sand bed in the shaded area.

For the ACAN experts.

What can I do to help them grow?

Please HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

feed em a little and then wait a few minutes. Then feed em a bunch. I'd move em into the light. They don't like "a lot" of light, but the shade can be just as bad as too much light.

Ok. I have been spot feeding them mysis. Should I try something else?

I use Ocean's Blend Coral Vibrance and small pieces of raw shrimp. I'd imagine mysis is probably fine too.

Chad, when you feed the mysis, what do the acans do? Can you watch them take it inside? I take pix of any new coral so you can go back and actually see if they are growing.
