Some corals, like most SPS
mix nicely. Most softies also mix nicely. Some LPS
go together but don't mix well with the neighbors. Most SPS
and softies get along. The rest battle it out until a no mans zone is created. Been watching this battle change hands for years now. I am in the middle of thinning the softies for more hard corals. GSP and mushrooms are potent. But my torch coral and big frogspawns take no prisoners so everything backs off of them. It is fascinating to watch.
Never had a coral harm a fish.
