Did the hammer have any brown jelly on it? Another thing when you removed it did it not slough any slime into the water column?

the hammer did have a little bit of "brown jelly" not alot. it did not release and slime once i removed it. my sisters royal coral also released a bit of that brown jelly stuff when her tank was not 100s.

float the bag for half an hour, add a little bit of water every 5min till the bag is complety filled with the tank water. total time spent, about 1hr 20min.
