    Hi guys, am i correct in saying, that this is a torch coral? If so, does anybody own one and have some advice on tank placement + any other tips etc? thanks.

    They are best happy just swaying in the current medium to high lighting. If you can turkey baste they with flourish.
    Very forgiving to water quality but not at all to knocks, infection will spread fast.

    Very aggressive so ensure adequate space from other corals. Their stingers reach quite a distance.

    Google euphyllia for more info.

    Thanks alot guys, i have one more question though. I've read that if a clownfish hosts a torch coral, it will kill the coral. Can somebody confirm this?

    I was thinking about placing the coral near the area where the clowns sopend most of their time, but id rather place it elsewhere if they are sure to kill it.

    Torch coral

    Hi. My torches also do better in low to medium flow. And yes, I have just lost a torch due to my clowns hosting in it. It took a while but it died eventually.
