Meat corals

Can 2 meat corals touch each other.

I know some corals of sand species can while others can't. Just wondering about meat corals (Acanthophyllia deshayesiana)

Thanks I had one for over 2 years but finally found a nice red and blue one. And lfs gave it to me for 250 so I had to jump on it. Figure I put it right next to the other one

Thanks again

I will say my green one to the right have been in the tank for 2 years ( well one tank move) It has grown very big over time and I haven't directly feed it anything. I don't really feed anything to the corals directly. I do feed my 45 fish in the tank 2 times A day. So as far as needing food imo that's just not true. Unless you running A very clean tank

Imo opinion they are a pretty easy coral to take care of with similar care as scolyomia. They where once in the same family. They like lower light and lower flow

Did I or did I just take a picture from a different angel lol. No I moved it. Wasn't sure if the flow in that area or higher light was causing it not to open
