    My daughter and son in law gave me a frag with a colt and the white tipped leather--maybe two of those. Can they share the same rock? I have 2 other colts in my tank and wanted to put this new frag on the same lone rock. I don't have pics yet as they are not in the tank yet, just in plastic bowls clipped to rim for the night.

    I don't think you will have a problem. I have colt corals and leather corals all over my tank. However, colt corals tend to grow a lot faster, so at some point you might want to frag it back.

    Hi there
    As the Colt gets bigger it my Lay it self on top the leather and will continue to sting it and Best to keep them slightly apart.

    Like mentioned above both of these corals can be pruned quite easily, so you might want to just let them grow until a problem develops and then you'll have to step in. GL.
