Just be happy it was a drag and not a 150$ piece. That's what I tell myself anyways

Ya i know what you mean, i keep thinking about it though. What if i do decide to buy a more expensive coral? I wont have any confidence that i can keep it alive if i just managed to kill the easiest coral out there. Lol

Just remember that frags are cut from larger corals. If they don't have proper time to heal its like taking home a chance. Maybe just stick to the hardier corals until your tank is a little more established.

I don't think hammers are any where near the easiest coral to keep... even as far as LPS, there are much hardier corals than hammers.

Polyps are great to have, GSP is impossible to kill and looks nice after some time to spread, mushrooms are good starters too.

Just because one coral doesn't do well in your tank, it doesn't mean that other delicate corals can't. I've had Acro's do really well and Xenia die for no reason.

What's all the fuss? Because ur coral is apparently annoyed by something, ur considering it as good as dead after 1 day? Wow. I wouldn't have any coral left if this were the case. Give it a couple days. Then if it doesn't emerge, move it somewhere else in the tank
