    I have had hammers/frogspawns/torches -euphylias (spelling)- since i started marines and it is still my fav corals to keep. Dunno about not being peaceful, i have seen them burning other coral with their sweeper tentacle, but for some reason mine is quite happy with other coral around them ( cannot say the same for my previous tank) and have really not any problems with them. I have about 15 pieces and am still waiting upon the arrival of quite a few more, from different parts of the world.
    Same as with SPS, if you want to enhance color, drop your nutrients way down...... And i have experimented this myself, by raising and dropping over few weeks......
