Colt Coral VS open Brain

Hey all,

I have a colt coral that has grown crazy large over the past 3 months, which is great. But in th epast few days, it almosts seems like it is starting to sweep its "arms" towards my green open brain and my brain seems to be creeping away from the colt.

Will these two species sting each other? Are they competing for space.

There is plenty of light where they are, and the two have been in the same spot for at least 8 weeks now.

I can try to get a pic if it helps, but I always was under the impression that the colt coral and open brains are not aggressive.

Thanks

John

Liveaquaria list them as semi aggressive. I have mine on almost oppisite sides of the tank just to be sure. Here is a pic of my placement



You can see the colt all the way to the left and brain on the right. Being semi aggressive I would be careful. I`m sorry I cut the colt out but here he is in this one
