    Just want to check something if you have frog spawn a hammer and a torch all in close proximity will they sting each other or since they are of the same species will they tolerate each other?

    I like all three got an awesome froggie thanks @gMAN. In my one side of the tank I have all my softies and want to add either a hammer or torch.

    My branching hammer and froggie are like touching each other and I have no problems, from what I know you can keep like species with little/no ill effect

    the simple answer, maybe
    i have my corals close together and no stinging, even between my bubbles
    trial and error

    the theorectical answer, yes the might sting each other at night with their sweeper tenticles

    That's what I though prob a hit and miss.... My tank is on a two week bio load stabilization period before I add anything more to it. Waiting on the next shipments for September to come in too ;)

    I won't chance anything near my bubble he looks mean at night ;) got five mouths that I could count ....

    You have to take a torch and see them at night. My hammer, torch and froggie have never sent out sweepers at night so its cool to keep them together. If you see sweepers then give them space. The bubble can really hurt or kill another coral with its sting
