Stinging GSP?

Will gsp "sting" other corals, such as Xenia? In my pico, I have a nice size rock that is almost completely covered with gsp, but when I bought it there were two clusters of Xenia attached to the part or rock that isn't covered. I've noticed that the Xenia tentacles that are touching the gsp are shrunken and white, while the other parts or the Xenia are pink.

Both Xenias and Green Star Polyps are peaceful corals so you shouldn't have an issue with them stinging each other. But if the Xenia makes GSP mad, then I guess you never know what could happen.

That's what I thought. I think the Xenia is bothersome. I guess I can just hope for the best. There isn't a way to detach the Xenia without harming it and the gsp, so maybe they'll get used to each other. It's just happened today and they were attached to the same rock before I bought them on Sunday so I'm sure it'll work out.
