    Full Body Contact

    Please tell us (me) which corals you have that thrive in contact with each other.

    Thanks Frank

    But eventually they will grow together so I am wondering which ones came into contact with little or no damage to each other or without overgrowing the other.

    I think Ive heard from a reliable source that varrious pocilloporas will grow into each other without fighting. Same goes for stylophoras. Prety cool because you can have varrious color corals intertwined together.
    PLEASE SEND ALL ACROPORA FRAGS TO THE REEFSURFER

    Its my understanding that if 2 peices of coral are growing besdies each other and they end up touching and dont like it.THey will stop growing in that direction and head the other way.I read that somewhere but cant remember where.
    I have mushrooms touching zoos touching polyps ,frog,torch and so on.I have my brains seperate and same as my leathers.
    Just because they are large.

    I tried growing an orange digitata with a green digitata. The areas that were touching were turning white and dying.

    My GSP and Xenia are in contact with my Monti Cap and there doesnt seem to be any issues (yet at least). Been that way for about 3-4 months now. Im hoping it doesnt actually grow on top of my monti (is that even possible?).
