You might try moving it out of the current coming off the hammer. It takes a while for chemical antagonism to build up, but hammer is very aggressive in growth, and will want to be the only coral in the tank, which it can do very effectively. Best solution might to be to move it to qt with adequate light and calcium and let it recover. I started with a 3-head hammer and it fairly well took the tank---the original became basketball sized, and I was fragging so often I ran out of places to bestow it.


Salinity 1.024-6; alkalinity 8.3-9.3 on KH scale; calcium 420; magnesium 1300, temp 78-80, nitrate .2. Ammonia 0. No filters: lps tank. Alk and cal won't rise if mg is low.

Current Tank Info: 105g AquaVim wedge, royal gramma, ocellaris clown pair, yellow watchman, 100 microceriths, 25 tiny hermits, a 4" conch, 1" nassarius, recovering from 2 year hiatus with daily water change of 10%.
