Candy cane: Sends sweepers out and will sting nearby neighbors. These can get longer than you think.

Kenya: Satan's spawn. Will kill an SPS on contact.

Shrooms/Green/small Button Polyps: need plenty of room for growth. Will happily take over another coral given the time and calcium.

Green Cup Plate: Probably pretty docile though if it is a leather it comes with its own bucket of toxin

Yellow toadstool: Toxins

Bubble Coral: Throws stingers in addition to the bubbles

Closed brain: These things can surprise you by actually putting out stingers. I was shocked to see that these stingers can be up to 2-3" in length.

Thanks for the info. Based on what you described I think I am OK for now. I will be curious to see some of the sweepers. The brain is new, so I have not seen any yet.


Thanks, I will update my gallery with some corals I see I do not have any there yet.

Another thing you may want to do is look around with a flashlight after lights out. Some corals (like the candy cane) send out their sweepers after dark.

my candy cane's let out their tentacles at night after lights out, but truthfully they are not real long ... only about 1/2"! I asked a similar question a while back and basically was told that the more room you can give the better off your corals will be!!

Good Luck!


God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!
