    well they do have to be placed in the correct spot with moderate linear water movement .they are calling it Todds Torch and it has been gaining popularity here . still on the rare list and there was basically one person who bought this lineage a few years ago and it has been slowly spreading throughout the northeast of USA . pretty cool to see such a different one that just hasnt popped up anywhere else .

    Was wondering what the "T" was for .... What did this "Todd" dude do that was so wonderfull for the torch coral that he had to have his name added to it .... Or was Todd a good dancer like the teantacles?:lol:

    lol the myth is that Todd bought the torch with these different characteristics especially the tentacle length and we haven't seen one quite like it since so he named it and its been selling like hotcakes ever since . kinda like all the" Tyree "sps corals here in USA also .the dancing cannot be commented on as i dont know todd personaly but i just think he can dance

    Are the tips blueish only with actinics on or with normal lights as well ... and just how long do these tentacles get to ... I see a tang in the pic and in relation to tang sizes it means these sweepers can be flowing all over .... Are they not harmfull to any fish and have your'll not found any fish hosting in them like clowns do in an anemone ....

    well fish will hostinthem for sure as at my lfs they have some rare clowns that host in them . the tenicles can get 7"to9" long and they can be a pita but their look is worth it . the tips acyually are purpleish and they do look quite brilliant under day lights . i will post a picture of the same coral under day lights for you .

    Yeah I'm a fan of euphyllia corals, this torch looks lekker. But you'd have to give it a pretty wide berth from the other corals. C'mon Lanzo, make a plan :thumbup:
