Frogspawn and hammer boquet

My LFS just got a bunch of small single headed frogspawn and hammers. They have every color I have ever seen even the purple metalic. I was thinking about getting 4 or 5 of them an putting them close enough to eventually become one coral. I think all the different colors on the same coral would be awesome. has anyone ever tried this? will it work.

I am good on lights. 216 watts t5ho on a 55 I was going to do it mid height. will all the corals maitain color and continue to grow or will they eventually all be the same. if i put them on the rock touching at the base will they grow together?

I dont think they will. I had one and recently broke it apart because it had grown to 22 heads. The single heads will grow into more but the only way to get those 5 together is that you would have to super glue them together and I dont know if that would work because they might consider the other frogspawn encroaching upon their position.

From what I have read about these corals is that since they are from the same family they will not harm each other. Even Hammer coral and Frogspawn can be house close together(same family). As far as them retaining their color that's another story and I can't answer that question. If the price is right and you wanted to give it a try, I would say "Go for it".

got them today. They are all single heads 1.5-2 inches long I have a small piece of lr that is very porous. there is enough voids in the rock close together to wedge them in. I'll let you know how it goes.
