I have a green torch right now and wanted to get a orange torch and let them grow together. Is it ok or will they sting each other?

My orange and green have been right next to each other for at least a year without an issue. These corals are litterally laying on top of each other in some places.

My hammer and torch are completely touching, so I don't believe it would be an issue with 2 torches.

I been told by a couple of different LFS, "yes, but sometimes no." I have have had groups of hammers and torches in contact with each other. They have usually done well but on a couple of occasions I've had one seemingly zap another. When I moved the zapped ones away from the others, they did fine.

They should be fine together, but if you see that they're stinging each other just place them back to their previous position.

I know it's been said a million times already in this thread, but I figured I'd add my 2 in. Mine are fine touching.
