    I moved my corals to my new tank about a week ago. My hammer coral frag is the only thing that has not seem to have recovered from the move. Its not completely retracted but it extended about 3 times as much before. I'm wondering if my Jaebos are blasting it too much. Parameters: Nitrates...

    So I bought a Hammer Coral when I was on vacation at one of the LFS and it made the 8 hour trip back with me. It really hasn't opened at all since it has gone in the tank. I've tried moving it around to create different levels of flow/lighting but nothing seems to make a difference. Tested my...

    I've been seeing mixes of purple/gold/green hammer polyps in what looks to be the same skeleton in pictures on Google. I'm curious if anyone knows how that happens? would you just take multiple colors and place them next to each other and hope they grow together? or are they a different breed...

    Hey guys. I bought a hammer coral frag a couple days ago. He was open for the first day, but has been closed for about two now. I originally had him about halfway up in the middle of the tank where I think the flow may have been too great. Will he be okay in the sandbed like this? He's about...

    So I posted on my build thread that I am having an issue with my Hammer Coral. My parameters are in check, none of my other corals are having any issue. I did a water change yesterday and will be doing another one in two days and will be moving the coral to a darker coral, any one have any...

    Noob questions boys n girls 1. How do I put coral in tank? Let's use Hammer coral for an example. Can I just put/stand the hammer on LR/sand bed? Must i use glue? 2. Understand moderate flow is good for hammer; but let say on top of LR and on top of sandbed, both has moderate flow rate, which...

    I made the stupid amateur mistake of putting my walling hammer coral on the rocks with to much flow, at least that's what I think happened. It was opening fully and about 3 or 4 days ago it stopped opening fully as you can see in the pic. I've moved it to the sand bed where it should have been...
