The hammer coral, Euphyllia ancora, is a cousin of the Torch Coral (Euphyllia glabrescens) that is similarly slow growing. Like Torches, this coral features large fleshy tentacles except much shorter and fatter. This is a hardy coral and a great addition to any reef tank. It will thrive in a wide range of conditions, but does best with moderate flow and light, and plenty of nutrients.
This variety is pure purple – so it doesn’t glow under blue lights. But this makes a great contrast with the common green colors!
The frag you purchase will come from the same lineage as the image shown, and will be similar in size. However, because of natural variation among frags yours may not look identical to this image.
Like all hard corals, this requires overnight shipping.
