Happy Endingz...my new CRAZY aussie acan

Hey everyone,

Here is Happy endingz, the pics don't do it justice. I have 70 colonies of acan's, probably 20 of which are Ultra or rainbow as some call them, but this is by far the nicest I have seen. The polyps aren't huge in the photo, I was brining it to someones tank to take these pics. But when they are open, the center of each polyp is a rainbow swirl.

at my friends shop...still fairly closed up



I will post more pics when I can...my camera is crappy

That is a very impressive acan! Something I find equally as impressive is those watermaelon chalice pieces to the right.

Those are awesome, I have been trying to fight the aussie craze but seeing those pieces will make it hard.

That piece is stupid good.... It also has a pretty interesting shape with the polyps being more squished than round...

Although I like sps, this is by far the most beautiful coral I have ever seen.

Thanks for all the comments. Now that it has been in my tank a few days the polyps are really open, and the center of each one is swirled with colors. I will post pics soon.

The watermelon echino is Tyree, and actually that frag is for sale right now at A Reef Creation in buffalo...website www.areefcreation.com. That is my friends lookdown tank.

Actually that acan with the red rim and pink center is a frag of another acan from my tank. I don't know why, I got that fairly cheap when it came out but for some reason they are selling for 50 to 100 a polyp.

Once happyendingz starts to grow new polyps I will frag more of it. i have received a few PM's already, but would prefer to trade for unique/rare colors.

out of the hundreds and hundreds of acans ive seen...id say i like those the best. when you decide to part with some (if ever, and i wouldnt blame you if that time was never) let me know. Ive got some Micros that are nearly the same coloration, but not as intense....yet=)
