Indo Torch Corals like those sold here are some of the hottest and most highly prized corals to enter the reef hobby in recent years. Different variants may go by names like "Dragon Soul", "Hellfire", "New York Knicks", "Joker" and more. These names were all hobbyists-created and are sometimes subjective. While some may have loose "definitions" within the trade, no two pieces are alike and the variant identity can differ. We attempt to use the most common "definitions" of each variant to help differentiate but feel free to contact us for more information on the pieces currently available if you would like to see it for yourself.
The "Hellfire" Torch Coral has pink/light purple tips. The tentacles are half orange and half purple with green stripes near the base.
Torch Corals get their name from the brightly colored tips of their tentacles, which gives the appearance of a lighted torch. Color varies from grey or tan to green with colored tips of brown or green.
These corals are aggressive in nature. Their tentacles can extend several inches and have a powerful sting that can damage other specimens. For this reason, they need to be placed far enough away from other corals so as not to cause damage or death to the other corals.
The Torch Coral must be place upright as tissue damage easily leads to the death of individual heads. Polyps are long with a single rounded end, usually extending during the day and retracting somewhat in the evening. This coral should be placed in an area with just enough water movement to gently move the extended polyps.
