I've always let my echinata grow near my normal acans because i figured that they had similar stinging abilities. I found half of my favorite acan lord colony covered in this white string coming from the echinata and it wiped out almost half of it overnight.

This happened after the echinata caught one of my frogspawn tentacles in it's mouth and tried to eat the tip so that could be the cause but regardless it's probably my fault for having them so close together now that they're getting larger colonies.

I think the Acan Echinata would win the battle. I keep mine far away from any coral in my tank.
