    Will these leathers sting each other?

    Will a cabbage and tonga leather sting/bother each other? I'd like to put them close to each other (not touching) but I'm concerned if they will bother each other.

    I don't believe that leathers can sting, but they may do some chemical warfare on each other.

    Got pics? It is hard to go by common names as everyone calls corals by different names. If you are talking about the cabbage I know, (brown in colour and sort of leafy) I have found that nearly every other leather tends to migrate away from them in time.
    It is a chem warfare thing, not stinging for leathers

    I can take pics but the software etc is on my husbands computer (should get installed on mine ) and getting him to download etc .......... well it's a pain

    The cabbage is pink (not brown) and where I'd put the other one would be about 4" away, would that be ok?

    Yeah, that's the cabbage I know- It seems to have a lot of chemicals and enjoys using them- I've never seen anything die from them, the other corals just lean away and then slowly ( over monthes) move away.

    either that, or the tonga will start a war with the cabbage and then after conquering it spend years searching for its chemical weapons - its a patriotic coral to have.
