New Frag- Needs an ID
Not sure what it is... I got it for $18 today. One head has died, but the live one seems to be happy in my tank so far. Anyone have some advice?

Hard to tell, maybe some type of acan
It will benifit from some feedings while it gets used to your tankIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Well, It seams to really like my tank. After I did some research on this little guy, and he started getting a bit healthier, I just LOVE it! Thanks for helping me ID it!

I know what it is. Pretty! ;) Seriously, I'd definitely say acan. Glad to hear it likes your tank!

To be honest, it looks like a candy cane coral to me. The color pattern, shape, skeletal stalk, and the dead piece next to the head all tell me candy cane or something in the family.
Just my two cents, lol. Nice looking coral either way!!!220g South American

The skeleton on this thing has spikes... More than likely an acan? its much too large to be a candycane I think. The head on this thing is about an inch and a half when all fluffed out. Poor thing has been banned to the bottom of the tank- fell off the rockwork while I was at work and some of those spikes were right through the flesh when I found him. He made a come back, and I don't want to risk it again until I have a spot for him where he won't fall. Love this thing though!

Use epoxy putty and put it where you want it. Nevr depend on friction or gravity to keep a coral in place.
