So I got a free hollywood chalice. It's probably 2x4 inches. I have it propped up on the back hoping it will climb up the back of the tank. I didn't realize until tonight that that has some tentacles!! Where do they come from, lol.

It's near my purple torch. Should I move the chalice? The torch is established, but the chalice is movable. Will the chalice hurt my torch?

I believe the chalice can do some serious damage due to the amount of sweepers it can produce but if the torch gets a good sting then the chalice can have quick tissue recession. Sounds like were calling a UFC fight;Hilarious

Hollywood stunners can cause some damage from what I have read. If it were me I wouldn't waste a torch waiting to find out.

It is crazy how sweepers appear out of nowhere. Just got a space invader and its insane how crazy sweepers just appear out of nowhere especially out of a coral that isn't all that fleshy

Exactly, all day its smooth, after lights out there were tentacles everywhere! I'm going to move it, I love my purple torch.

This is like my war coral, where do those tentacles come from?

Ya my war gets some going too. I knew space invaders were aggressive but its nuts how a 1"frag can have like a dozen 1" sweepers out of nowhere

My Stunner was a killer. I had to give it a wide berth. Very fast grower too.

At my LFS the other day and a large wallhammer was less then an inch from some cheap chalice sweepers. I LOVE WALL HAMMERS and hopping to purchase so scared me to death. 3 way wall or looks like a birds foot pattern
