It actually takes time. From the looks of it yours were wayy too close. They have to slowly be exposed.

Keeping them apart is the safest. But sometimes corals do get used to their neighbors and coexist on friendly terms.

They were a good 6+ inches apart. I guess I will chalk it up to not so good advice from LFS.

they are far enough apart for now. Hopefully they can be nice neighbors with time.

From what I understand the torch's sweepers can reach up to 8in. Yours don't look to be stung too badly though, so hopefully they'll recover quickly

thanks! I knew their sweepers could get long, but I didn't know it could get that long. My FS is completely healed and the torch looks 100x better. Half of one head is still kinda retracted but it doesn't look nasty like it did. I will post an updated pic later =)
