Actually could use some help IDing the other torch. Not 100% sure it’s indo. What’s the green one and are they compatible?

It probably has more to do with the species than the region that they’re from. In my experience, thicker tentacle torches are okay with other thicker tentacle torches. Thinner tentacle torches seem to have a sting that will kill or aggravate thicker tentacle torches.

Hey @RandyC (or anyone else who knows their torches) can I get your opinion? Here are some more pics of my two torches. Do you think they would get along?

I would venture to guess yes, but it'd be just that a guess. Normally if they're going to attack each other you'll know pretty quick because the one doing the attacking will have their tentacles "stick" to the other torch almost immediately.

But what can I say, I live to experiment and deal with the ramifications of my sometimes really stupid decisions after.

I thought I wasn’t stupid enough to risk $800 worth of coral but my pistol shrimp knocked over my green torch and I have to pick it up anyway I thought I’d do what you all told me to do and see if they stick.

Here’s me adding to the body of marine research BRS style:
