torch coral pecked at

I just bought 6 small torch corals on sunday, all are on a cement ring of some sort... They were doing fine(stretching out and feeding) however tonight i looked to see my emperor angel pecking at them Will the arms that were bitten off grow back? Also while im talking about them eventually i would like to take them off the ring. Should i break the ring or is there a way to frag them?

THT

I am starting to second guess the fish now. It was my bro who said he saw the emp angel around the coral. But I did see my powder blue peck at my 'dieing' flower pot(it only has a few arms left anyways). Not only that but today my torch coral was beet up again. It must have happened between 845-9 that is when the atinic goes on.. and when i walked by at around 930 the powder blue was hanging around the torch with his mouth 1" away from it. I stayed and watched for about 15mins but he didnt strike.

Tomorrow i am going to setup a camcorder to record what happens when the atinic goes on. The truth will be told!!!!

btw its just the "arms" that have been picked at, will they grow back?
