Updated, the hammer fully died in a day pretty much. So I had an itch to see all the high end torches Shane has but the website only has sps, zoas, and mushrooms for viewing

Anyone got pics of skittles? Or anything else?
I’ve only bought his lower end torches. I got a kiwi punch, Knicks, and my favorite was just sold as a basic indo

I’ve been craving something new and I might have to do it to myself on the next sale. I’ll see how my torches settle in. Only been like a week but it’ll be my biggest purchase yet. So I’ll see y’all when I’m able to go to McDonald’s for WiFi and sneak my ramen noodles in. Also I’ve demoted myself to a moped

So are the banana and skittles torch really that bright yellow in the tank? I’ve been all over looking for them and people posting pics vs pics for sale are way different.
I'd say the brightest yellow torch I own is actually a regular indo torch.

Another thing I've noticed is that the coloration of the torch will change per your individual tank. I'm sure light schedule/par and nutrient levels might have to do as well as light brand... but I'm no expert.

I gotcha, I’ll start with a banana or indo. They, at least from last sale prices, won’t break my bank as much. That skittles just had a dreamy look to me in the pic I saw. I was just scared it wouldn’t be like that. Although the torches I have are no where near on that level even on indo or banana torch level. I got peach tips, cotton candy, Rasta and grim reaper. Sub 100 a head. So like I’m stepping into a new realm haha I wanna be blown away

Most of those are actually just variations of the same torch, the good ol indo...

Other bright one is the HG

I don’t know my torches as you can see. I didn’t know they were just variations! Holy grails are mega expensive I’ve seen those prices lol. I like the super bright yellows and greens if you can’t tell which is like half the torches from what I’ve seen just trying to find the brightest so I can end my hunt!

I forgot to mention if you go to the menu on the SBB site there is a section for gallery. You can look at his previously sold corals on there. I don’t think you can sort out torches but it’s not hard to scroll and find them, then click on the picture to get the name.

Found them! Those banana variants is definitely what I’m gonna try and snag! I’m ready now @SBB Corals but I can wait lol

I thought you could put torches together but one of mine stung both torches on each side. They’ll be alright? Just one or two tentacle things got stung
So yes and no. Torches are territorial with torches from other locations from my understanding. Indo torches are good with indos, Aussies with Aussies, etc. Mixing indos and Aussies can cause warfare sometimes but maybe not always?

I’m no torch expert but usually the ones that have longer flowy tentacles are Indo and ones with shorter tentacles tend to be Aussie. I believe there are some differences with the skeleton but I don’t know enough about it to tell you how to tell them apart by it.
