Coral Placement Problem

I placed my torch coral above my Frogspawn coral. Will this be a problem? The frogspawn doesnt look so happy....

I wouldn't have them so close. Both have long sweeper tentacles.

+1 keep different species of LPS a good amount apart. Also take growth and future branching into consideration.

If the epoxy/rock is too hard to snap, a saw or chisel will work wonders.

You can just keep it there. After you cut through it, the epoxy should come off with your fingers. You can use bone cutters if you want to remove it.

Also I believe both the frogspawn and torch like to be at the bottom of the tank!
