Due to its similar appearance with hammer and anchor shaped tentacles, it is named as Hammer coral or Anchor Coral. The Hammer Coral Branching - Frag is a large polyp stony coral which is hardy in nature. Its polyps are visible in green, tan or brown color along with lime green or yellow tips on the ends of its tentacles that glow under proper lighting. Sometimes, the Hammer Coral Branching - Frag might confuse us with the species called Torch Coral for having branched polyps. It needs extra care and with proper water flow and lighting conditions in the aquarium, the Hammer Coral Branching - Frag will thrive. It needs a supplement of calcium, strontium and other trace elements into the water which aids in its proper growth and development. The Hammer Coral Branching - Frag is a great coral to keep as a beginner and makes a terrific addition to any aquarium. Its large polyp extends in the day time and is called as phaceloid. The Hammer Coral Branching - Frag features stinging behavior and hence is recommended to keep these away from the existing corals in the aquarium. Generally, its sweeper tentacles can extend up to six inches in the reef aquarium, singing other species of corals and animals. This coral needs an ample space for its growth and to avoid any stinging behavior with other corals present in the aquarium. The Hammer Coral Branching - Frag is very beautiful and gorgeous to keep in any aquarium, and is sure to draw attention to your reef tank.

Beautiful coral!
I am so impressed by the size of this coral! For a frag, even! It has two heads on it and would be no less that $30 at my local pet store. So happy with this purchase, that I am already wanting to buy more!

This is a great coral for the beginning hobbyist. The hammer coral can be pink with white tips or a delicate green shade with pale tips.The large polyps are phaceloid (coralites that are of uniform height and are adjoined at the base) and extend in the daytime.Closely related to the anchor, frogspawn, torch and fine grape coral. The distinctions between the speices is unclear and the skeletons are often the same.Provide medium lighting and moderate water flow. This coral may be placed in the sand or lower on the reef.Keep this coral at least 4 inches from other corals to prevent any stinging behavior to other corals.Primarily photosynthetic, this coral should have marine snow or zooplankton in the water column, brine shrimp may be given occasionally.
