    Probably too late to ask now but can you keep a frogspawn and torch together?

    They seem so similar that I thought maybe they will do nasty things to each other (or the water). They are far apart (on opposite sides of my 25l :lol:)

    Anyone?

    No problem, kept mine together but that was in a 700 liter:tt2:. As long as the sweeper tentacles don't touch then it's safe. This is where flow comes in very important, if possible you can with flow determine which way the tentacles will flow and thus you can know where placement is.

    You can , depending on your system size. They have quite long sweeper tentacles so they could harm inmates around them

    Thanks guys... As I said, my tank is only 25l but they are both quite small... Current should take sweepers away from each other (if that's possible in a 25l :lol:)

    Thanks... :peroni:

    GO STORMERS!!!

    Dude, first just check in the night if sweepers come out. They dont come out with all euphyllia. I have a torach, hammer and froggy and have never seen the sweepers besides when I just put them in the tank. I have the three pretty close to each other but the tentacles are not touching.. I say if you dont see any sweepers then you can bring them closer but within reason :)

    I don't plan on bringing them closer... Like my original placement for now but I'll check for those sweepers at night... They close down after lights out though...???

    When lights are off the tentacles shrink then the sweepers come out. I think if you have sufficient light they sweepers dont come out. Can you take a pic?
