Hammer corals are a great beginner coral and will sway back and forth to the currents in the aquarium. Hammer corals are a favorite of many because of the sense of motion they bring to a reef tank.
Tentacles: They do have sweeper tentacles that can extend 2″-4″ at night and sting nearby corals. Hammer corals may be placed next to other Euphyllia species such as frogspawn coral and torch coral as they do not sting other Euphyllia.
Placement: Mount the hammer coral on an exposed rock or ledge in the lower two- thirds of the aquarium where they will receive moderate currents and low to moderate lighting. Leave 2-3″ around this coral as it has tentacles that can sting nearby corals at night.
Feeding: Although symbiotic algae called zooxanthellae hosted within them supply some of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis they do benefit from supplemental feedings of Oyster-Feast, Roti-Feast, and mysis shrimp.
Lighting & Flow Requirements: The hammer coral requires moderate water flow and moderate lighting (PAR 150-250). T5’s, Metal Halides, or LED’s can all grow hammer corals when the proper PAR levels are provided.
