most information on torch corals say this
The Torch coral is a relatively simple LPS (Large Polyped Stony) coral to care for. While a torch coral will grow fastest under high-powered halide or T5 lighting, even modest Power Compact lighting is enough to maintain this specemin. Their fleshy bodies are not tolerant of extreme point-flows as created from some powerheads yet they will do well in medium or high diffuse flow such as created by Tunze or Seio powerheads. The coral will not tolerate low flowrates very well at all. Water chemistry requirements are typical for most tropical corals, 72-78°F, sg 1.023-1.025, pH 8.1-8.4, dKH 8-12, calcium 350-450ppm. They are tolerant of higher temperatures in the summer months up to 83°F and will grow fastest at higher calcium and alkalinity levels.
I have mine kept close to this only my ph is always around 8.0 but my torch
is hardly growing at all yet the green tip hammer I have is at least twice its
original size and it was bought a week after the torch.cant figure out whats going
on with it at all confused confused

Ive had both my frogspawns for nearly a year and am only seeing growth with one of them now although the guy I got them off has a tank full of them. Everyone's system is different and things grow at different paces. Patience my friend.
