Thanks Greg and OP. I was completely unaware of this. I just separated them and there is a little recession on both. Its not real bad, but its not good. Now I have to decide which one I want... I don't have the room to separate them from one another and everything else.

Don't be. We all learn together here... It was just the flow of the conversation.

The closest thing to my torch is my xenia. Maybe nature can keep it from being too invasive lol.

That's a good point. Once you understand the basic nature of each coral you can use encrusting corals to make natural barriers between more aggressive species.

Thanks for the idea for a little garden

There's a small overlap and the one to the right is shaded about an inch in. Should I separate them a bit so light gets the entire thing or will it be ok due to the fact that 96% of the piece is exposed to light?

That looks good to me, watch them to be sure they are happy with each other.

Will do. Will warfare be evident within the first couple days? Or longer? Or shorter at that?

Rebuild 40 breeder softy/LPS

A few days, but watch the trend over time, are they growing? Is the gap between them getting bigger? Is one coral doing worse than the others?

Roger that. I'll keep an eye out. Now time to decide what to do about this pesky vermitid snail bugging my wall hammer... :-/

Paul- just found your 40b thread. I joined. It's nice tagging along to other tank builds of the same size.
