Frogspawn will get along with most other LPS, torch nukes just about everything around it.

They won't damage that kind of stuff. The crabs and snails are safe. The torch has long sweeper tentacles that can sting other corals within a few inches. Frogspawn tends to get along well with others.

They appreciate light and can go midway to the upper part of the reef. Where exactly has more to do with your lighting setup. They also like gentle random flow patterns.

IME frogspawn are a little more forgiving than torches. I had a metallic green torch that was my favorite coral. I watched it's slow demise (ok, very fast) from brown jelly. Frogspawn are almost bullet proof. Also branching is easier than wall.

Sorry for jumping in on your thread blueaquarium. Am looking to get a torch with the hope my clowns might host it. After reading the frogspawn is more forgiving I am having second thoughts. Have clowns been known to host frogspawns?

Most LPS corals hate being hosted by clowns. JMO
