Bought a new hammer coral today and noticed at home it has black dots/patches on its skeleton. Gave it a dip and scrubbed lightly around the black spots and two little bugs came out which I'm having trouble identifying with Google. Could use some help and any info on why the skeleton has black...
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!

Just wanted to show a few corals I have packed in this reef before I upgrade to my 75 gallon! I use two AI 16hds. A simple hang on the back with aquachar carbon and it’s a life saver. I can honestly tell a difference. I have a nero 3 and a small jaebo wave pump on either side. Thinking about...

Hi all! I have another question about my hammer coral. So over the past 3 weeks my hammer has been flourishing. All my params are in check and everything is going great. I have noticed tissue recession at the very base of the coral. I have read that this is normal, and that the tissue will stop...
So I’m new at this salt water thing and this is my first hammer. I noticed this “pineapple” shaped growth forming on the skeleton of my gold hammer. Anyone have any idea what this is or what it could be? Any input welcome. Thanks for helping a novice out (in advance)!
So I came home yesterday and this guy was adly on his side in the sand bed. It seems he fell off the rock I glued him to. I have domes the glue and epoxy sandwich technique this time to stop it happening again. But he's very displeased this morning. Will he be OK?
So a few days ago I got a hammer coral. 3 heads, with new buds at the bottom. It’s a really nice piece! I’ve made a few posts about it, asking questions and what not, but now I have a curveball. My Ocellaris Clown (male) has started nipping at it and causing it to retract. I don’t think he’s...
I recently got my tank cycled and set up since since the start of July (cycled with live rock, Brightwell bacteria, and live sand) and only recently added some corals into the tank (mostly LPS and soft corals). For about two weeks, the corals seemed pretty happy and would be opened...
I have a wall hammer in my tank, that has been doing well so far (fingers crossed). However, I have noticed over the past couple of weeks that there's a section of it turning like a dull gray color. Anyone know why?

I scored a beautiful hammer!
I went to my local LFS and they had a bunch of hammers for only $45. I've always loved the look of them, so I asked to put one on hold until I could check all my parameters. It ended up taking me two weeks to get everything in-line and I got to pick up my hammer...
Hey I was wondering if I could get some help. So a few days I noticed a hammer of mine is losing flesh after a few months of having it but noticed it a few weeks ago and don’t know why. Also noticed another is closed and not open/puffy like it usually is just for two days so far. And my one of...
Hi, My purple and green hammer coral seems to be changing colour, the purple is now going down the stem as well as the head, before it had a purple head and green stem but some are now mostly purple. it this normal? Sorry, I'm a little new to reef keeping. Its only a small young head.
