Not a saltie...but coral spreading means that they grow on all different sorts of places depending on lighting and flow, and some grow more faster and vigirously than others I guess, classifying them as semi-agressive or agressive. I wouldn't think all corals are like this but I'm sure there are some out there that are. Again, not a saltie, this is all from research.

No there are non-aggressive corals as well. Usually aggressive means they have stinger tentacles they send out if they detect other corals and either duke it out like that, or chemical warfare

Yes, you just need to make sure to place them where they cannot come into contact with each other when fully expanded.

Anything within the reach of an agressive coral is subject to getting stung or hit with a chemical bomb. The peaceful coral isn't the issue.

By reach you mean they can't touch right?
Can corals harm fish?

At night when the lights are not on, they can put out tentecles. You want to be sure that other corals are not withing reach of the tentecles. liveaquaria.com gives a good listing of what the reach is. With things like hammers, they can give off chemicals so anything that is down stream in the flow of water will bet blasted. Yes, some corals can even eat fish from what I have read. I am no expert but do your research before you add anything and you should be fine.
