Indo Gold Tip Hammer Coral Euphyllia ancora

This aggressive branching hammer has purple stalks and gold-colored tips. These Indonesian hammers grow very quickly compared to their Aussie counterparts.

Gold Tip Hammer have sweeper tentacles that can extend 2″-4″ at night and sting nearby corals. Hammer Corals may be placed next to other Euphyllia species such as Frogspawn Coral and Torch Coral as they do not sting other Euphyllia.

Mount the Gold Tip Hammer Coral using IC gel glue, or putty, on an exposed rock or ledge in the lower two- thirds of the aquarium where they will receive moderate currents and low to moderate lighting. Leave 2-3″ around this coral as it has tentacles that can sting nearby corals at night.

Although symbiotic algae called Zooxanthellae hosted within them supply some of their nutritional requirements through photosynthesis they do benefit from supplemental feedings of Reef Roids, and Mysis Shrimp.

It is important that proper calcium (420-440 ppm), alkalinity (8-9.5 dkh – run it 7-8 if you are carbon dosing) , and magnesium levels (1260-1350 ppm) are maintained.

Raising magnesium levels gradually up to 1400-1600 ppm can help to combat algae outbreaks, just keep CA and Alk in line as you raise the Mg.

Nitrates should be below 10 ppm and phosphates should be below .10 ppm. It is recommended to do a water change when Nitrate levels rise to 10 ppm. It is important to replace your phosphate media when phosphates rise to .10 ppm.

Media Reactors make the most efficient use of your phosphate media by fluidising it.

Acclimatising your new corals is a important method to make sure they survive and thrive in your system.
