I have never been stung by any coral in the same family as the torch. They will go after neighboring corals though as their stinger tentacles can reach out 6'.
As for clowns, you don't want them to try to be hosted by a non anemone. It is stressful and can kill the coral.

Wait 6 feet or 6 inches, because if it's 6 feet how do people have those in there tank. What's your opinion on frogspawns because I want to do the torch or frogspawn.

Here's a question about my star polyp, is there a way to stop it from growing. I was thinking I could put a coral near it and it would not go further.

My 29 gallon reef tank

ID:	287647 I was wondering, I have a glass panel on top of my tank to prevent fish from jumping out and to stop salt from rising to my ceiling. Would my tank benefit from removing it? Also tank looks a little foggy because I have been slowly adding new sand to the tank and the option shot may seem crowed in the front but the photo was taken on a slight angle through the opening of the glass lid.
Just finished some scraping in the tank and noticed this white fuzz all over, it was not harming anything it just looked weird like a white/ clear algae. I ran some tests after finishing the scraping, anyone have a idea what this is. Could it be a product from me feeding my fish more food?

Your tank would be of great benefit from removing the glass. Glass tops prevent CO2 exchange. You can easily remove it, but if you are still fearful of carpet surfing you can get a mesh cover from somewhere like dr fosters and smith or get some commercial egg crate from any place like Home Depot and cut it to fit, which is what I use.

My 29 gallon reef tank

Thanks I'm about to run off for the weekend to a forest preserve for photography this weekend with my family I'll take it off when I get back (so I can monitor the change). I have a neighbors daughter coming over to feed fish(fish food is in plastic bag and labor for each day). I still can't decided between a torch coral or frogspawn, which do you guys like the most and why? Also is it common for fish to jump out that I would need a cover.

You can go several days without feeding your fish. They would be fine without eating over the weekend.
As for the two coral, frogspawn is less aggressive than a hammer though some prefer the look of the hammer (like myself).

I know they can go longer with out food but my female starts to pick on the male a lot if she does not get food. Also I was talking about torch coral not hammer coral.

I like torches a lot better than frogs pawns. The torch gives that anemone look to the tank with the long tentacles
