    Hey guys

    Does anyone know if a flowerpot and a organ pipe coral can be kept in close proximity or will the flowerpot sting the organ if they touch?

    Thanks

    Neither are overly aggressive but always wise to keep a little bit of distance between corals. Both corals can be challenging to keep long term.

    Thanks @NJH

    I have put them next to each other and it doesn't seem too bad. All the articles I read is that the flower pot is agressive.

    I've also read both can be challenging long term, but strangely my organ pip started as 4 little organs has exploded to so many I can't count the heads. So I'm hoping the flower pot also thrives.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    I would give them a little more space.
