    I've had this frogspawn in the tank for about 5 days and it was opening great as you can see in the picture, I got a bigger colony and they were doing fine until about yesterday that I noticed the second head in the little guy was retracted.
    Is it stung or is something else happening?

    The smaller appears to be a hammer coral and the bigger one appears to be frogspawn.

    Well that's something I didn't notice, thanks for that

    About the size of the second head though? What are your thoughts?

    It's perfectly fine. Euphyllias typically won't harm each other but a torch coral is a bit different. I've always kept Euphyllias together with no ill consequences.

    It is Swiss but there sting is much more potent. It's the only euphyllia that I couldn't keep with the hammers and frogspawn. Not saying it can't be done but definitely keep an eye out.

    I've done the same in the past that's why I was a bit unsure of what was happening, I keep my torch in a rock all on its own those tentacles can go anywhere haha
