The Rainbow Acan Colony Coral, scientifically known as Acanthastrea sp., is a stunning and highly sought-after coral species that adds a kaleidoscope of colors to reef aquariums. With its vibrant hues and captivating patterns, the Rainbow Acan Colony Coral is a true centerpiece that will elevate the visual appeal of your reef tank.


The Rainbow Acan Colony Coral showcases an array of vibrant colors, ranging from rich reds, oranges, pinks, and purples to striking blues and greens. Its polyps form beautiful concentric circles, creating an alluring display of colors and patterns. They typically form colonies and can grow to sizes that cover several square inches, becoming a captivating focal point in the aquarium.


Known for their ease of care and adaptability, Rainbow Acan Colony 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 Colony 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.
