I have a hammer coral that I would really like to see grow, however the frag
i bought is shaped like a Y, with two colonies on either of the top two points (the bottom point of the Y is in the dsb
). They have run out of room on these tips (about the size of a quarter when they go in) and i would like to know the best way to get them to spread? Should i touch the base of the colonies up against a piece of rock, to encourage them to grow onto it? (Works for my xenia, but it is like a weed! )
Any thoughts or suggestions would be really welcome!
Also, all pictures i see of hammers have pinkish stalks, and greenish hammer tips, mine is the complete reverse, with pinkish hammer tips, is this just diversity, or am I doing something wrong?
Thank you all!
