    I was wondering if anyone has successfully place two different colored torch corals in close proximity.. Like a mixed ZOA rock?? Is it possible?

    I have heard that you can place Torch, Frogspawn, Coral, and Hammer Coral next to each other as they do not sting other Euphyllia. I have not tried personally but I'm sure someone can chime in with actual experience.

    They can be placed together and won't sting, just don't go too close or as they grow, the fastest growing one will still overtake the others because of shadowing.

    This is a big no-no. Same species yes, but torches will kill frogspawn and hammers. Frogspawns and hammers can be together though.

    I've heard same as seth. It depends on species.

    Seth is 100% correct IMO and experience! MOST (YES most) hammers and frogspawn can co-exist next to each other. Torches are notorious for being ruthless stingers and have over night killed several of my hammers literally over night with their sweepers.

    The original question was can different torches (not torch with hammer or frogspawn) be placed near each other. I have never witnessed any aggression between different color torches only minor aggression between torches and different species.

    +1 torches are ok to have with each other.

    Just realised I put torches and hammers in my post. I meant frogspawn and hammers can be together.
