    Cipro testing on hammer coral

    I had a branching hammer retract, bleach and was pretty bad off. It looked moments away from death. It didn't extend at all for almost a week, when It extended slightly It was bleached on every head. It had 3 heads. Woke up one day and one head had BJD. In a panic I ordered some cipro online...

    Awoke to BJD on my 10yo hammer…pray for me

    Awoke this morning to a sight that I was not expecting. Over five heads had ejected polyps over night with two more head visibly showing the ever dreaded brown jelly. The colony is over 10yo and I’ve never had the courage to frag it. Today, I jumped in, hoping I wouldn’t loose the entire thing...

    “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it” What lessons have you learned the hard way by attempting to “fix” problems that you really didn’t have?

    Just trying to start a discussion! I’ll begin It took almost 2 weeks for me to find a spot where my hammer coral and Florida ricordea were happy. Then it took another week trying to figure out how strong to set my powerheads. Things have been going well for a bit now. just added a few more CUC...

    Any idea why my hammer is looking like this

    Had this hammer for a few months now and when it opens up it opens really wide and the polyps sometimes are really skinny? Is it too much flow? I have some higher phosphates at the moment could that be the cause? It can get even more open and stretched out then in the photo. Thanks in advance

    What is my hammer doing?

    Just got it 2 days ago. Yesterday it was fully opened and seemed to be doing okay, but since this morning it is been like this and is expelling this long almost clear looking stringy substance. Is there anything to worry about?

    EMERGENCY Red on hammer?

    Hi guys, Does anyone know what this may be? There seams to be 2 red masses and one small red mass on my hammer. I’ve had the hammer a month and the first 2 weeks everything was okay, but the last 2 weeks it just hasn’t opened fully, I’d say it’s opened about 70% max. I was wondering if these...

    Target feeding individual heads/mouths?

    Hi all, Dendros, Acans, Favia, Duncan, Frogspawn, Hammer, etc... When target feeding, do you have to feed each individual coral mouth/head for every parts to grow? Or will feeding one "distribute" the food to the entire colony? Thanks!

    Damaged My Hammer w/siphon

    I was doing my weekly water change this morning and I lost control of my siphon. Long story short, I hit my hammer coral with the hose. It sucked up about 2 tentacles and damaged about 5 or so. Will it heal on its own or do I need to take action? I’ve read iodine dips help, but the frag plug...
