I have a green hammer coral and an orange torch coral, and hopefully getting a purple and frogspawn in a few days. How close can I place them to eachother? Can they sting eachother? Do they like being close or not?

You shouldn't keep different types of euphyllia near each other (Hammers, Frogspawns, Torches). I have kept, with great success, the same types of euphyllia together. For example, Indonesian torches with other Indonesian Torches, or, aussie hammers with other aussie hammers.

I have my hammer, torch and frog spawn on the same big flat shelf in my tank because that is where their preferred flow and lighting occurs but I don't let them get close to each other. It was easy when they were frags but as they grow I'm running out of room.

On RC some share that frog and hammer have coexisted but that the torch will not get along and will win the battle.

From what i read hammer n frogspawn can touch each other, but the torches will need to be isolated from other corals so they dont sting them n kill your other corals. For placement in my 110g tank my frogspawn n hammer are on the same rock n place at the bottom, for the touches i have it isolated mid-level of the tank n to me they like little more flow.

Can two different hammer corals be close together (slightly different types / colors)?

From my experience, yes i have different hammer, frogspawn all near or touching each other without issues. Its the torches that usually causes the issues. Hope this helps.

My frogspawn and branching hammer are right next to each other with no visible issues.

I've got 2 hammers and 2 frogspawns touching each other no problem.

I've also got 3 torches touching each other.

Typing "touching each other" feels a little weird. Lol

All of those Euphyllia can touch.

You are good with all of those together. Here is a photo of my rock with Hammers, a frog and an Octospawn. I had a Torch on this same rock before I got the Octospawn without issues. They don't really care because they are from the same family.
