    Do they exist? Is that what’s in the pic? Or just a cool green and yellow hammer?

    I no, but didn’t noticed the branches were green and the tips yellow does that makes any difference?

    They look like toxic hammer corals to me.

    Look at the hammer on the left of the picture. [​IMG]

    Another name i have seen these called is a splatter hammer. A little more than your common hammer in cost but not significantly.

    Ha! far from it but thank you. Looks like a splatter or bi-color hammer to me. That's a nice looking coral.

    DSC_reef sorry to mess you around but managed to get a video that shows the details I was trying to get on a pic, just wondering if you had time to look at it. No filters.

    Am hoping so once he heals, the base is in a very bad shape am hoping it won’t melt, so the two tone tentacle doesn’t mean much on hammers? Similar to the torch.

    It's just a cool pattern for a euphyllia. Pretty desirable IMO, they look great in person.
