    Can I place Acanthastrea hillae and lordhowensis side by side in contact?

    Thanks in advance

    I don't think that would be an issue. Maybe some of our #LPSexperts can weigh in.

    Im sure you can, usually corals of the same or similar genus will not attack each other. I would be careful since this rule will not always apply, keep an eye on them. Lordhowensis corals actually belong to the micromussa genus btw.

    I personally have mine very close without ever having a problem.

    I believe lordhowensis and hillae can be together but I'd keep an eye out just incase no mesenterial filaments come out to play;)

    I keep all of my Acans right next to each other without any issues.
