Yes you can. But keep and eye out for reactors. People on here are always selling them for cheap. You can run GFO on one and cardon on the other using one small pump. Or you can just use one for the GFO and run carbon in a netted bag.

How old are the bulbs, may need replacing.
But if your other Euphyllia are doing ok it is more likely an acclimation issue. It is usually best to put new Euphyllia in lower light and slowly move them up. Same goes for water flow start with low flow.
In my own experience I have had instances where I lost some heads of Euphyllia while others just bloomed with no problem. In general I have not had much luck with torches.

I just bought new bulbs last week. I moved the coral to a new lcoation in the tank yesterday to see if it helps.
