I know that these Euphyllia strains like hammers and torch and frogspawn can hybridize into spammers and octospawns etc, however has anyone else noticed corals visually learning and adapting from one another. I have placed 3 Og strains together and observed them over the past few months I have watched them learn to live in the close quarters, my large orange wall hammer has changed its polyp size and shape ....it’s actually amazing looking back to old pics from a video I took today. It now shares all three Neighbors polyp varieties. From the original hammer shape to frogspawn and torch multi branch balled tip like extensions. While the torch is making new polyps in which stick together more like the hammer ..... was thinking of doing a more detailed write up if anyone’s interested
