Ive had a hammer coral about two weeks or so and doesn’t seem to show any growth or too happy, ive tried moving it around any advice? I have 3 other frags growing great!

Are those three other frags also hammer corals? What are your water parameters?

Two weeks it could still be acclimating and wouldn't expect to yet see growth but would expect it to be fluffy.

What are your water parameters? GSP, duncan & zoa will be more forgiving that hammer. If my magnesium is low they aren't as fluffy, but would say check your parameters against above chart (EDIT: main parameters, top 10 - not many are testing bottom 6 - or ammonia or nitrite once cycled)). If you aren't listing because you don't know, then get your LFS to test until you get all your kits. You might have to call around to find a LFS that will test everything for you, if needed.
