You should have enough light for the hammer. Remember to place it away from your other corals and give it space. Euphyllia are aggressive corals.

The hammer is a moderate light coral so you should be OK. Good advice given by severum mama about placement.

My bad...260 compact is good enough for most corals. Sps might have to be placed in the upper 1/3rd of the tank. The problem with compacts is they don't have good penetration. I have my doughts about keeping an anemone unless it to goes up toward the top. Not enough light power is a cause of anemones getting sucked into power heads as they move around the tank looking for a good spot.
