    Hello All, I have this hammer that I bought on 3/2 and it I accidentally added a very tiny amount of ph buffer to the display around a 3/14 and it closed up and the skin receded up to the top. Since then it hasn't receded anymore and it has been a lot more full of life. Today during my water...

    Hey guys! Just wondering... I know that my Aussie Hammer can really stretch out at night... do you think that 8 inches between that and my Red Acan is far enough? They are on 2 separate rocks and the max they could grow would still have 8 inches of room. Do you think this is enough? I don't want...

    Hi all, I've had my 29g biocube running for almost a year now and have lately had a hard time with my hammer and frogspawn corals. They were the first corals I had started with and were doing beautifully for the past 5 months or so - growing and fully extended. Within the last month they have...

    My hammer doesn't look good. I raised the flow in my tank for my frogspawn (which is doing much better now) but now my hammer looks like this. I've tried moving him twice and no luck. Any advice? All water Params in check except for a little phosphate.

    I think I killed my hammer coral. I've had it for about 3 weeks or so and it was doing beautifully (see before pic). I noticed that my salinity was a bit higher than usual (39ppm) and decided to reduce it when I was doing a water change. I probably reduced it too quickly (brought it down to...

    I have a nice green hammer coral. I have had it for about 4-5 months now. last week I noticed he seemed to be smaller aka not extending his hammers out. One other observation I noticed is that some of his hammere are extended longer like 2 inches further than "normal". I have made one change to...

    Ok so it's time I got some help from my fellow experts. Some of my LPS are still bleached from increasing my LEDs 10%. Around that time I switched from the crappy petco salt to IO. So a change in lights and salt. My hammers, frogspawn, and torch have stopped growing. They are discolored and...

    Yesterday i went down to the dive shop (who also catch & sell fish/coral) in hunt for snails (finally successful in that) and saw possibly the biggest hammer coral i've ever seen. It was in their display tank, the skeleton would probably be bigger than an adult head. They caught this one only...

    Things about my tank. I have a 90 Gallon aquarium with a DIY LED fixture with about 300W of lighting. I have mostly LPS, some softies, and very little SPS. Everything was doing fine about 1.5 months ago... so guess what I did? I slowly ramped up the lights on my LEDs about 10% slowly over two...

    All, I will be getting my first coral today and the plan is HAMMER. What is the lighting period? When to when? What tool do I need? Glue? Turkey baster for target feeding? What to target feed? What is the liquid called? What else can you think of? Thank you!
