Yes, they are very aggressive. I would have at least 4" between it and anything else. My torch extends about 5" outwards which is why it's all the way at the top left of my tank all alone lol.

I figured the euphyllias where usually all cooperative with one another. IME the frogspawn is a way faster grower too.

Well you can try it out.. I looked at your pic closely and didn't see any recession or signs of abuse from the Torch. I would try and observe after lights out and see if it extends and hits the frog. I personally just wouldn't take a chance...

I also thought that anything in the euphyllia family played nice, however when I bought my torch my LFS said to give it plenty of space, and they know I'm a euphyllia junky

Doing a bit of research... Could this be the octospawn/frogspawn difference?

Or is this all just forum copy/paste riffraff I'm reading...

No problems so far. They are both fully extended throughout the day touching each other. Not the first sign of any conflict day or night, but I will be watching. Torches along with just about all euphyllia are powerful corals as far as the sting they cab deliver onto other corals. I'm really hoping this works out.

Octospawns have more dots and different colors, but are pretty much a frogspawn. I have seen a half frogspawn, half hammer. One coral. Thats what I was referring to as the hamfrog.

Frogspawns and hammers can coexist. Torches must sit alone.

Rebuild 40 breeder softy/LPS

Sorry! But they are toxic to anything within a few inches. Mine has cleared the area around it of just about everything. At least you know before you loose corals.
