How big are Acans?

Ive never seen them in real life and am close to ordering some online. But how big are they? I remember seeing micromussa for the first time in person and was kinda disappointed because i didnt know they were so this the same situation?

Acans are typically around the size of a quarter to 50 cent piece. But I do have some bigger then silver dollar size.

Life's simple, you make choices and you don't look back.

Current Tank Info: too small

It depends on the individual morph and where it was originally from. Some lords can be micro sized (about two pencil erasers) all the way up to half dollar (fully opened). If you are unsure about a specific piece maybe ask for a picture taken on eggcrate or with a common object of known size (ie; maxijet part)

Hope that helps =)
