Frogspawn or wall hammer?

Which should I get, I really like them both. I want something that will grow faster then the other, and gets really pretty. I am thinking frogspawn. i've done all the research just now and know they are agressive, but I want an opinion to settle in the purchasing choice.

any of the walls will grow much slower than the branching types of either.

Branching types are safer. If any sort of disease breaks out you can break off the infected heads, if it is a wall type you will probably lose the whole colony.

Ok thanks guys. I went with the frogspawn. Is 76 a good temp? My heater for some reason won't heat up to 78 infact at all. It says it's at the temp no matter what I put it on. I put it at 90 just to see if the heating light came on and it didn't and I'm pretty sure my tank isn't at 90. It's a stealth pro heater 300w

They recalled all the Stealth Pros. I would get the Aqueon equivalent. If it is new you should get a refund.

I have both of them. The frogspawn



and the hammer coral



They are both pretty hardy corals. About the only thing I`ve seen happen to either is the brown jelly disease. When I first got my frogspawn I had the disease and had to break all but two heads off. Since then it grew to 22 heads which I broke off about 14 and gave it to a friend. Since then it has grown back to 25 heads. The "walled" hammer in about the size of a basketball and has grown maybe 6 times the original size. They both grow exceedingly well. I dont feed mine as the get all they need from the lighting and water column.
