    Mt dad's hosts a hammer coral with no ill effects so don't think it will be a problem.
    If you see the torch is not looking so good or closing up then you must do something.

    I've seen my mates clowns destroy his torch coral. It had about 8 heads on in.( but we think it was the sand bed the clowns keeps spraying over his torch, clowns were nesting in a rock near it) mine love my frogspawn and i see no signs of stress.

    they are known to irritate the corals of the euphyllia family to the point of dying.. They've even been knows to host clams to the point of death

    Unless you can move the coral far away so that clown does not see it.

    Else make an eggcrate box and place it temporary over the coral so the clown cannot get to it.
