Lol, it's only towards other coral, except for the same type. We, meaning humans, can't feel the sting of corals or anemones. Pretty sure.. unless there's some nem out there i don't know about that can sting people.. but from what i've read there's no nem in SW aquaria that can sting a human.

My bad, I took another look at it and it's a torch coral. Frog spawn has mutipule spots or heads on each strand where as torch is single.

Nice Torch.

And TC, do you know that from personal experience? Cause a bit of your blood in the tank might have caused the mutations we see in your home aquaria.

wow I'm jealous. I really like my LFS, but their liverock selection isn't the best, especially nothing with hitchhiker frags like that on 'em!

I am no coral expert, but the tentacles look a little thick for a torch. looks more like a frog to me.
