That is a nice acan!  Good to see some of these showing up in the stores again... seems like the supply of more colorful specimens dried up for a while.  I haven't paid close enough attention to know if any of the collection/export embargoes impacted that.

I’m still learning things, but isn’t that a Micromussa

I'm not sure.  Perhaps we can get input from the recently published expert:  Jeff @CuttleFishandCoral

I thought Acanthastrea Lordhowensis has been reclassified as Micromussa Lordhowensis? 

So Acan Lords are now Micro Lords. 

Either way it definitely is a beautiful little colony!

Someone is volunteering themselves for a classification talk at an upcoming meeting 😄

Oh my... I swear, my growing acan collection is going to be the ultimate reason I have to buy a coral saw.

Or.... I could take them off your hands 🤗   Actually, this would be it for me as well - no way I would try fragging acans without one.

Love this piece! Super happy it went to a good home and is being enjoyed. 

 

Thanks, but can you answer the question:  Is it an Acan, or Micromussa?
