    Hey Guru's


    I have my Frogspawn about 20 cm upstream from my torch.

    Will the forg release stinging cell and damage the torch?

    I had the Frogspan a bit high up, but it didn;t look that happy so close to the light. On the substrate it looks much happier...Just don't knwo how it will affect the torch downstream...?

    When they sniff each other they may extended tentacles but you will see it.

    the size of the corals will determine the distance between them.

    I have a fairly big Hammer and loads of coral within a 20cm radius and he doesn't attack, but when corals get closer, he goes crazy.

    Thanks Warr :)

    I'll keep an eye on the torch. The frogspawn I think is still too small to reach the torch..

    I'm not 100% sure put I recall reading somewhere that Euphyllias are either imune to other Euphyllias, or they just don't bother with each other.

    Living together

    A lot of books claim that frog spawn, hammer and torch corral can live together and even touch each other. Some books claim that frog and hammer can, but not torch.

    Any experience with this?

    Hi Len - no specifically - but I personally do know that torch-corals are bad buggers when it comes to stinging....
