    Hi guys I have been reading up a lot on. Feeding hammer corals as I now have one and would just like to know from those that have hammers or smillilar like frogspawn ect.... What you guys feed them ? I know that they will more than likely feed upon what ever fine foods I feed like coral frenzy but maybe there's something else that's working great for you and would like to share it?

    Thanks

    It's not necessary to feed them. If it's the one you got form me then it's not necessary.

    Your lights should be sufficient in providing the Zooxanthellae in the corals tissue or the safest i think would be freshly baby brine shrimp.

    Not necessary to target feed Hammer coral, Mayne is doing fine and has made new heads just with lighting and calcium on 430ppm,
