Can my ftogspawn be placed close enough to touch my torch coral?

I have frogspawns and torches touching with no problems.. frogspawns, torches and hammers are all in the euphllyia genus so there shouldn't be any problems

They can still sting each other, just usually don't but I'd still keep an eye on it for a while, especially the torch as they can be a little more aggressive.

How aggressive is the frogspawn towards most types of brain corals?? Placement is harder than I ever thought it could be. Between lighting flow and fighting.......lol

I would be much more worried about frogspawn vs brains than frogspawn vs torch. I had a acan colony get pushed over by a snail and it got to close to a frogspawn... Not any serious damage that it didn't quickly recover from but it definitely didn't like being stung by it for the 12+ hours that is was next to the frogspawn.

Usually euphillia corals can be near without any problems... Sometime some people get problems... It's case to case... Try it, if it look bad after a certain amount of time, then make a bigger distance.

Frogspawn

I bunch hammers, frogspawns and sometimes torches. Never had a problem. But common advice is that hammers and frogspawns work together and torches stand alone.

Here's another example of how comparable they can be. Isn't this gorgeous?
