The ones you like were my first acans, I've actually fragged them a few times. The far left ones on the island are my favorite. I'd be interested in doing a swap of a head or two of a few colors if anyone is interested? I need more blues/blacks/dark colors.

I totally would for that watermelon piece or something else, but u saw my acans (not very dark)
How hard is fragging? Any quick tips?

I like Steely's scape, mines too 2-D ):

Thanks.

I think at the height of my collection I had around 25 different lords. When I had a tank transfer to a 150 that crashed I lost about half my collection including that larger purple colony. I still have quite a few that are doing well but I don't buy them anymore because I've kind of run out of room for new corals. My maroon clowns have been breeding so they kick up a ton of sand on them as well.

I may start a small tank just for my Acans though because I really enjoyed them. Maybe a 20H of just acans and LPS.

Fragging is easy, pretty much just take a diamond wheel to them and dremel them, set em in some iodine mixed water and let them soak for a minute and voila, you're done. At least that's how I've done it in the past. Any heads you cut in half usually grow back.
