I could use some help obviously I spent about 2 hours doing this definitely needs some work. Not all my pictures either lol! I haven’t labeled them yet or formatted it very well but what am I missing here I know there’s a lot of variants but, the more the merrier.

That's a great start! All beautiful and more varieties than I ever knew! Bottom, far-right... WANT!!!
Yeah that bottom right is absolutely insane. I’m working now on putting the names of these so far on there. I know there’s a ton more but there’s so much interpretation and confusion when it comes to torches so I figured why not start making a big bank of them.

What is the coral on the 2nd row, 2nd in from the right? That thing is incredible.

I thought it was a black widow nem at first!
This? That’s a Indo gold torch. Indo gold should be like a 24k but indo. Gold all the way down. Not sure what tip color but lol

This is the one I was talking about. Now that I look at it more, the tentacles kinda look like a new york knicks torch, but I don't recall seeing the base bluish/purple how it is in that photo.

Last row, third from the top? Neon green with pink tips? I have had a very small one for a few months now w/o knowing id. Thank you so much!!! :)
I think that’s an Aussie cotton candy. It has bicolored tips like the Indo cotton candy except it’s fat tentacles. Came from Aussie

If it’s got blue and pink tips it’s a cotton candy Aussie. Gotta have that bi-colored tips going. If not then it’s some other kinda Aussie. Send some more pics when it opens up!

+ 1 on the far right but add the second row from the bottom, third to the right... Orange and purple are complementary colors.
