Will two sepeate corals of the same type sting each other?

Will a frogspawn sting a frogspawn?

A hammer a hammer?

I know acans won't sting another acan no matter how different, is this the same with other corals?

Short Answer...No they won't. Even a hammer won't sting a frogspawn...same family.

Just remember that if you add a different spieces of coral that the hammer and frogspawn have sweeper tenticles that can extend to over 6". So keep this in mind when placing other corals around.

I have an LPS tank, and all my corals are hammers of frogspawns except for an Elegance and a told stool and a few zoas. The problems with placements I was having was actually just with the hammers and frogspawns, apparently I was moving everything around for nothing!

The elegance and the toadstool need there own spacing. Other then that, you are good to go...
