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 explicitly need to be placed on the sand?

They can do fine on the rocks, as long as they get proper flow - they should have good, gentle movement but not whipping around.

The one I bought is still pretty small and when I turn on my 1250gph ph as an addition to my smaller 250gph it gets beaten around like crazy and closes. If I keep the 250gph running I can see it moving around even though the pump is really weak. I'm not sure how much movement they really need.

If you are going to place the Hammer on the rocks make sure to secure the skeleton with some epoxy or super glue gel. (or a combination of the two) A Hammer coral tumbling down the reef slope is not good and sometimes when these things get damaged they take a turn for the worst. GL.
