Don't know how this works...hopefully I do it right!

In nine days it will be our tanks first birthday. Currently have two clowns, two azure damselfish, one royal gramma, one elegance coral and a good sized CUC. Looking to add a Euphelia... Can't make up my mind, first choice for me was a hammer! Thought I would take the decision out of my own hands and see what others like!

I'd go hammer...a little cheaper to stomach if something goes wrong in the tank. Then if tank remains successful and you have the euphillia thing figured out, then torch.

It's a lovely tank.... love all of the two tone fish! I vote torch so you get some beautiful flow, and more than one color. There are some stunning torches with brightly colored tips. It will pop! Happy tankiversary!!

I like torches myself — be aware that your clowns might be really attracted to them though. Mine live in mine.
Clowns are weird. Mine lives in a waving hand Xenia. :p

I'm addicted to hammers so thats my vote! If you like euphyllia then you can keep hammers and frogspawn together but a torch can sting both so the hammer or frogqspawn would give you more flexibility. If not a hammer than a duncan coral would be my next pick!

Ok I'm going a little off the reservation here than the others but hear me out.... 1 year? That's a victory btw. My vote is for Bubble coral. You have tons of room based on images for it's tentacles at night. It's easy care for mostpart, and looks imo gorgeous on a reef. So there lol...
