The pink one looks like a blastomussa with the polyps retracted.

the green and blue isnt an acan its a favia- the orange ones look like a favia based on skeleton but its kinda blurry

I'm not an expert on favia, but the green one looks like a favia to me.

ok so green one is favia. i know the pink 1 isn't blasto's my blasto's are really healthy and they started with about 6 heads and now have about 10 this 1 only has 3 and has been hard skeletoned ever since i got it i don't know if this helps but when i moved it i accidently touched the head and this sperm stuff came out i know its a deffense probably but just wondered if this helps with ID

ok maybe its acan anyways i was wondering do i have to target feed this if it is a acan? i don't target feed anything not even my frogspawn or even mini maxi carpet. when i first got this, at night the sweeper tenticles would come out and now i haven't seen them in awhile

I think the pink thing is acan its been hard looking since I got it it was never like my blastos its not bleached I have had it for about 3 months. The bta was done trish it finally let go of were it was sitting and it wasnt sticky then it got stuck to the powerhead :( at night the acan looks swelled up is that normal. I don't know if metal halides is to much for the acan I got the light about 10 inches off The water and my tank is 22in deep the acan is on The sandbed. So what do u think the problem is?? I still want someone to stop by for their opinions on my tank

Barry, If it is an Acan, you might want to shade it. I had to do so with my Acans at 30", under 400 w MH.

Sry to hear about the BTA :( And yeah.. i agree about shading it... you saw how far my MH were off my tank (like 30 inches - of which i had to block the light from blinding people at the party with a oh so sexy piece of cardboard - its was ghetto fabulous baby!!! I think Reefkoi may still have a pic of that too hahaha), But anyway - I kept my acans on teh sandbed too and STILL kept them shaded!! And they did great! So do that with urs... just at the edge of a shaded area so they get a lil light. and FEED THE POOR THING YA BIG MEANIE!!!

i didn't trade it as a blasto i was told it was a favia or acan just wasn't for sure which one. like i said it looked like this when i got it except the sweeper tenticles would come out at night they were tiny with little balls at the end of them and now at night it kinda swells up like it looks soft instead of hard. tonight i see 1 tenticle coming out. here is my blastomussa's i got these from lance.

i was looking at some acan lords on your site and sponsor forum chris, and this mystery thingy looks like acan lords deffinetly. just tiny. now what do you recommend me feeding them and does theyre sweepers have to be out to eat? and are they supposed to be hard or soft? my blasto's are soft until they retract then they get hard like theyre stocking is hard

when I have some that are drawn in like that and needing some food I use the Fauna Marin LPS pellets, sprinkle a couple on each mouth once a week, you could also use chopped up mysis shrimp or brine, if you wait until just after the lights go out it is easier because they do send out the feeders and take the food quicker!!
