I have some zoos and star polyps that are starting to get near to each other. My question is will the bother each other if they start touching or no? Thanks

They will definately bother each other as well as stuff around them.

Most soft corals release a toxin when they are infringed upon. They are not like stonies that just send stinging tentacles and cells, they actually release a toxin that winds up in you water. Since it is such a small habitat it will affect everything in there. If it happens you will see other corals not open as much, but running carbon will help this. So if at all possible just try and not let them touch or realy get too close.
