Thank you.  Primarily mysis although they seem to puff up nicely when I feed the tank rods food.

How do you feed them without the food being stolen by fishes & cleaner shrimp?

Large mysis is tough.  They will get stolen.  I have a brand of frozen cube smaller mysis that is much easier to feed to corals. I tend to squirt some in the opposite corner for fish and then spot feed the acans with a turkey baster.  Even if the mysis themselves get stolen, the cloud of smaller bits gets to the intended corals.  I think acans react pretty quickly to feeding if you can just keep the other occupants distracted for long enough...which probably results in over feeding more times than not.

How much did those green ones cost? Your acan garden is just plain BEAUTIFUL.

I’ve had those for a while.  Probably started as 3 heads or so.  Now well over 30.  I typically spend $20-$50 max on frags so it was probably somewhere in that range.
