both are nice, but i like that there's much more variety with SPS compared to torches. nowadays every torch i see is green, yellow, or purple lol. and have a color combination of like 1-3 whereas with SPS one can have up to 4+ colors

edit: i do have planned on getting a torch this year @ RAPNY. either that or another type of bounce mushroom.

No contest. Nothing beats the variety you get with acros. Torches are "all right", I guess.

Lol! Just kidding, love torches.

BUT.. look at all these amazing acros! Fine. There are a few torches in there too.

Wowzzaa!!!

See you aren’t too far away - any chance you need to trim back a few of those puppies??? I’m happy to pay the price and make the trip!

Acro here. I can keep some of them alive and growing. Every torch I've ever added has died.
Give me your address and I will send this Torch along. Had for over 3 years and have fragged 5 times. Very hardy torch!

I prefer movement of the Torches to a stick standing there doing almost nothing. Dont get me wrong the colors of acros is not challenged by torches. My current tank is euphillia dominant in the past I had 125 sps and 120 lps tanks. While everyone that came over saw the sps tank first they always said wow its like fireworks in there. Then they saw the lps and had a hard time walking away saying its so serene the swaying of everything.
They are both great but the torch movement still gets me every time.

I feel like a few torches are must-haves for me, but with acros I want them all.
