My torches like high light and gentle flow just enough to make the tentacles sway. I found out that with high flow he didnt want to open up. Just my opinion. Try him out at dfferent spots.

I never had success with any torches. The last one I did have for about a year. It started out with 4 heads and over time 3 died. Then finally the last head really got very big and I sold it when I got rid of all my euphyllia.

I have. Few torches that started with single heads and are now colonys of 10 ,I feed fine small.pellets weekly,they like flow but not a constant flow ,more of a wave flow and as for light my two green ones are as high as can be baking under a 250 radium metal halide ,I am going to try a golden torch soon I had one a few years back and it didn't do well but my tank was not doing well due to moving to a new house so I think that may be y ,I did hear they are very slow growers compared to the reg green ones
