    Hammer coral not looking good

    So I've had this hammer for about 6 months and just this past week, it has shrivled up and I can start to see the skeleton. What could've caused this and is it dying? This is one of the oldest corals I have and don't want to lose it! ph: 8.4 ammonia: 0 nitrite: 0 nitrate: 5.0 phosphates: .25

    Please help ID these white spots on my hammer.

    Any idea what this can be on my hammer? I thought it may be growing more heads but I don't think that is it.
