Torch corals are slightly less common than their Euphyllia cousins the Frogspawn coral (Euphyllia divisa) and the Hammer coral (Euphyllia anchora). They have long tentacles that terminate in a single brightly colored tip giving them the appearance of a lighted torch as they sway with the currents. Torch corals can come in some incredible colors such as neon green, deep purple, and the highly desirable Golden Torch. Torch corals like all Euphyllia are known to extend sweeper tentacles aggressively when situated too close to other corals. This hostile reaction can damage or kill nearby corals, so it is important to be aware of placement at all times.
