Hello everyone!
just thought I’d start with water parameters…. They are all good.
I have noticed these little lumps on my hammer coral and over the last week they have grown bigger and began to grow what look like small tentacles. Are these new heads growing?!

That’s great cause I wasn’t sure how hammers spread cause some corals split or grow new heads on part of the rock next to them. Good to know this.
As far as I know, Euphyllia can split heads and grow new heads from the stems. I have one (not sure if it's a frogspawn or hammer) that has about 10 baby heads growing from the stems and one head that looks to be splitting.
