The Hammer Coral, also known as the Euphyllia Coral.

The Hammer Coral is a large polyp stony (LPS) coral that features long, sweeping tentacles that resemble a hammer or anchor. It comes in a range of colors, including green, brown, purple, and pink, and can be found in both branching and wall varieties.

One of the benefits of the Hammer Coral is its hardiness and ease of care. It can tolerate a range of lighting and water flow conditions, making it a great choice for beginner and experienced reef keepers alike. It should be placed on a stable surface in the aquarium to ensure proper attachment.

The Hammer Coral also has a unique feeding behavior, as it extends its tentacles to capture passing plankton and other small organisms. To supplement its diet, you can feed it with small pieces of meaty foods, such as shrimp or krill, once or twice a week.

As the Hammer Coral grows, it will form new heads, creating a beautiful and dynamic display in your tank. It can also be fragged easily, making it a great choice for propagating and sharing with fellow reef keepers.

To care for your Hammer Coral, it's important to maintain stable water parameters and ensure that the coral is not being preyed upon by any potential predators, such as snails or crabs. Regular water changes and supplementing with calcium, magnesium, and other trace elements can also help ensure that your coral remains healthy and vibrant.

Overall, the Hammer Coral is a beautiful and hardy LPS coral that is sure to impress in any reef tank. With its unique hammer-shaped tentacles, range of colors, and ease of care, it's a great choice for any reef enthusiast. Add this striking coral to your collection today and enjoy its beauty for years to come!
