So I had this beautiful wall hammer arrive yesterday 8 hours late via UPS in 93 degree weather with a water temp of 86.5. The seller contacted UPS and said if it doesn’t make it they would cover it. It was shipped with an ice pack but due to UPS being outrageously late it was exhausted. I slowly brought down the temp of the shipping water before adding a bit of iodine to help it. All skeletal tissue is gone but it’s still holding onto polyps. Currently in low flow and 100 par. Is there a good chance it can recover?

If the tentacles are out and not coming apart from the skeleton there is a good chance it could recover. When you mentioned skeletal tissue are you referring to the membrane around the the edge of the tentacles?

The tissue that usually covers the base of the skeleton

Most Euphyllia only has a membrane which resides towards the upper end of the coral. Right about the edge of the Tentacles. Rarely does the tissue go further down. So exposed skeleton is not a bad thing.

Based on these pics I'd say it should be fine as long as the tissue is not sloughing off or losing tentacles. Walls can be challenging to keep usually do to BJD. Overall they're not that hard to keep. IME wall hammers prefer lower flow.

Thank you, it’s currently in just enough flow to make the tentacles jiggle
