    Hammer and Torch proximity

    my hammer and torch are pretty much touching. is that ok?
    they are from the same family so will they sting eachother?

    Forms fairly large colonies. Skeletons grow in a meandering fashion. Polyps have long tubular tentacles with Hammer, anchor or T-shaped tips. Color is usually orange, with lighter colored edges to the tips of the polyps. Similar to and related to Torch Coral and Frogspawn coral. Can be differentiated by the anchor or T-shape of the end of the tentacles.
    &
    High. Hammer coral can expand considerably from its skeleton and has sweeper tentacles that are up to 2" longer than normal tentacles that can sting neighbors. Hammer corals grow fairly quickly and to a large size, so they do best in larger reef tanks. They can be kept in contact with others in the same family such as frogspawn coral.


    **They should be fine.

    Both are euphelia corals and shouldn't sting each other. You might want to allow more room for growth though. Beautiful corals both.
