The Rainbow Acan Coral, scientifically known as Acanthastrea sp., is a dazzling and highly sought-after coral species that brings a burst of color and vibrancy to reef aquariums. With its vivid hues and captivating polyp formations, the Rainbow Acan Coral is a true showstopper that will elevate the visual appeal of your reef tank.


The Rainbow Acan Coral displays a breathtaking range of colors, including brilliant reds, oranges, pinks, purples, blues, and greens. Its polyps form intricate and mesmerizing patterns, creating an enchanting display of colors and textures. They typically form colonies, covering several square inches of the substrate or live rock, becoming a captivating centerpiece in the aquarium.


Known for their ease of care and adaptability, Rainbow Acan Corals are suitable for both beginner and experienced reef keepers. They thrive in stable reef aquariums with consistent water parameters and moderate lighting. Placing them on the substrate or securing them on live rock will allow them to flourish and expand their colonies over time.


Feeding the Rainbow Acan Coral is relatively simple, as they are primarily photosynthetic and receive much of their nutrition from light. They also benefit from supplemental feedings of marine-based coral food or liquid plankton, which enhances their growth and coloration.
