    Carals touching...

    Alright I know some coral will sting other coral if they touch... But do they all sting? Can some coral touch other coral? If so with ones? How can you tell...

    Any help is appreciated!

    Thanks,


    Marc

    not all sting, alot do

    there should be a chart of agressiveness of corals online somewhere, usually coral of the same species is ok if they touch and wat not, but try to avoid it anyway,

    If they start going white and shriveling away from the other coral.
    (j/k) but seriously

    i try to keep mine so thay have a little distance between them. It makes sense to me that if the polyps are clear from abstruction (rock or other corals) they can get food easier. and keeps them clear of any waste that another coral may produce

    Torch have one powerful sting, they won't bother other members of that family but most probably will most (if not all) corals.
