I have the hammer coral in my tank in the sandbed under my radions. I originally wasn't happy with it. Came to me with 4 heads and never really did much of anything, even extend well. Through the months of it just hanging out, I moved it many times to make room for a new coral that I wanted in that spot. A month ago I moved it again and BAM. Extended well and took off. Just counted 9 heads on it and it looks great. I'm assuming it is mix of less intense lighting and flow in my instance.

How fast do these grow? I counted 13 heads last night... And HOW do they grow? If they grow down, it will be getting burrowed in the sand. Do corals tend to grow towards the light/open space, or is it more random branching?

Mine grows at a moderate pace. They will split the individual heads they have now and form more branches. At least that's how mine grows.
