And they are both Euphyllia anchora There are also two different polyp "type", hence the two different common names, but they are still the same species of coral.

I have always call them anchor and branching hammer. I also say tomato and not tomoto.

Okay then, thanks for the correction! I thought the sweeper cells were only 6" though?? It is the branching anchor so does that have shorter sweepers than the others?

Sweeper tentacles will grow to the length they need to combat what it perceives as a threat, all Euphyllia anchora can produce very long sweepers if they feel the need.

I dont think a 29gal is big enough for it then with all my other corals in there. I'll just go get something a little bit less agressive. How do you know if it thinks something is a threat or not?

so it only develops them when it feels threatened? I can see the sweeper tenticles on it at the base below the tops of the branches but they aren't very long at all. Maybe 3" tops. I see some long ones just floating in the tank though. I dont know if they are the sweeper tenticles but it looks like long hair just floating around until it gets stuck on a rock or something.

If everything looks good I would not worry about the sweepers until you see them. If the alvio is being stung by the hammer you will know it. It may not bother it, just wait and see.
