    My tank is freshly cycled and I added some new frags (zoas, mushrooms) and now my hammer, as well as the new frags, started closing up randomly during the day. I added the hammer during the cycle ( I shouldn't have done that) but it did fine I guess. It looks like it got injured or something...

    I purchased a hammer, I think 2 or three weeks ago, with some fish and bottled bacteria. I know that the guy from the LFS screwed me because I ended with 1 dead tang and 2 almost dying clowns. I returned the clowns but left the hammer in the tank. It's been cycling for a while now. I noticed...

    I have a 50g tank with low-medium water flow. I wanted to colonize the rocks on the right side alongside withs some fragspawns in the future and reserve the spot on the sand for a blastomussa or elegance coral that I also want to get in a couple months. Do hammers thrive on rocks or do they...

    These are newly purchased hammer corals, they've been in my 12 gallon fluval edge nano tank for about a week. I added them the same day I added the torch in the foreground. Yesterday they only extended about a half inch but today I'm not even getting that. I've got zoas, candy cane coral...

    Hi all, I have a pair of red sea clown fish who LOVED their green bubble tip anemone. The anemone died because of a sudden spike in nitrates, fortunately it was the only tank inhabitant I lost. It took me about 4 weeks to stabilize the tank and get control of the situation. In the meantime...

    Hello all, I have a hammer coral frag that I bought from a local reef store two weeks ago. I was kind of concerned because my hammer coral keeps on shriveling up and going back to being fully extended. This is a pattern that happens during the day and at night, however, at night it usually...

    After more than two years of thriving, my hammer corals for the past couple days are not opening up full. I started with one three branch specimen, it grew to six branches and I broke a piece off giving me two three head specimens. These have each grown to six or seven heads and were looking...

    Just brought home a huge hammer frag and found my peppermint shrimp eating it. Noticed it relatively quickly and took action. Removed one shrimp, but couldnt catch the other one. So the hammer has been quarantined for safety, but is all sucked up. Will it be okay? I have a torch with the same...

    Hello! This is my first post and I was hoping to receive some advice on my branching hammer coral. In July 2014 I noticed that my hammer had taken a nose dive and started shriveling up. After a week of only extending to 1/4th of its original size I noticed that a strand of tissue on the bottom...

    Hi I've had this clown goby in my tank for about a month now in my 20 gallon long reef. He's been doing great and sitting on my hammer coral almost all day. However today I've caught him scratching his side against the mouth of one of the hammers heads. Could it be ich? All other fish are fine...
