Coral Placement

When deciding where to place coral, how much room should you leave for growth, i have three small colonies (zoos, yellow polyps, & star polyps). Will any of these colonies attack each other? anything else i should know.

Dont know if they`ll attack but just keep them separated by a couple inches. That`s all I`ve got mine separated by. Have a good day

Just a few inches are ok. Give the yellows and stars a bit more room. In my experience, they spread faster.
