Frogspawn and torch

I currently have a torch coral and would like to add a frogspawn. Will they be ok in the same corner of the tank where they will touch or will they sting each other and fight. Reading conflicting stories online. Thanks for any help.

I never had a problem there in the same family. If it would happen you would notice one not opening up.

I have mine about a foot apart. Everyone seems happy. Good luck!

Thanks guys. Mine would be about 8" apart if I place it where I want to. This would ensure that they would be able to touch one another. If this is not a problem then that would be great. Thanks again.

I have my huge hammer and frogspawn pretty much interlocking as they grew soooo much. They are completely fine together.

Most of the corals in this family are fine next to each other. Torch corals on the other hand may be aggressive towards other torches and others in this family. Just observe torches and move if you notice any issues.

I read the same conflicting stories. I think its a hit or miss, and would do it with caution for the first few weeks. Then plan to move them apart if they start stinging each other.

My hammer, frogspawns and torchs all touch each other, I've never noticed a problem.
