Hi, I have 3 hammer corals around my tank and want to put them all together so it looks like one big hammer coral "garden" when they are opened during the day. Just want to know if I can put them next to each other without worrying about them stinging each other.
Thank you everyone :)

Or it doesnt matter?

Torchs should be kept by themselves. While you can sometimes get away with other euphyllia and a torch, more often then not the torch will sting the heck out of anything that gets close(there is a reason they are called torch's)

Hammers and frogspawns can go together and actually grow into each other with 0 issue. I have a branching hammer and a wall hammer that have grown into each other for a really cool green on purple effect. My torch on the other hand is on an island all to himself as he stings the heck out of anything that gets within reach.

My gold torch killed a green torch I put it with.

i have all my torches together. I had a coral I thought was a torch but turned out to be a grape coral in there with them, and it was getting stung.
