As I'm putting together my coral collection can I work to the following principle

E.g.. All acans can be put together, all candy canes together and so forth for all the differing species.

Due to the expense of the corals I'm basically buying frags but it looks a bit sparse so I'm trying to leave room between them for when they hopefully grow out but can obviously maximise space if species can be sat together.

Thanks:

You can definitely put Acan's together in a 'garden'. Not entirely sure about Candy Canes but they are pretty peaceful in my experience so shouldn't pose a problem. (The principle won't hold for everything though)

Hammers and Frogspawn work together. Torches only with other torches.

Acan lords can go together, Acan Echinata will sting the crap out of everything around it

OK , is there a way of telling the difference between the acans, I basically bought an acan frag?

Flesh of the echinata that surrounds the mouth appears like it's all one piece. No clear separation of the polyps like a acan lord has. Once you see enough of them it's very easy to spot.

 
If you irritate an acan lord the flesh will pull on and you can see the separation inbetween each polyp, when you do the same thing to a acan echinata the flesh pulls in but it still looks about the same as it did when puffed up (flesh does not separate really).

Acan Lord. You see clearly individual polups.

Echinata looks like this, beautiful but packs a real punch. Nothing grow within 6 inches of mine
