Are you *sure* about that not stinging thing? Only reason I ask is because my Torch Coral would leave nice welts on my arm if I wasn't paying attention and got too close - and a Torch and Frogspawn are the same family. Granted... I wasn't feeling any pain during the actual contact, but there was definitely a reaction.

Best bet is to wear gloves whenever handling corals... regardless.
