Torch Coral?

I bought a torch coral the other day and its doing great. It has pretty dull colors which I liked but I wish I got one with green tentacles. Its a tanish now with light green tips. Will it change to all green? And also, how long do the tentacles get at full grown? I saw one today at an animal hospital and the tantacles were 8"+. At least it looked like a torch. Will it? And also, how long does it take for them to get big?

This is a torch that was at my LFS. Wish I had the money when I saw it. To give a reference the pvc that holds the shelves are probably about 4-5".

My torch is also brown with the neon tips. Thats pretty much the way it will stay though. Here's a kinda crummy shot of mine after about 6-8 months. He has gotten huge! make sure you allow enough space between him and any other corals.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I have a brown torch and a green one.... the tentacles sweep out pretty far sometimes! Mine like to be fed too, chopped shrimp or scallop, they suck it right in!!
