LPSl like the hammer likes a low to medium flow. The greens star polyps usually will spread very well in higher flows.

with hammer corals you have to be careful, if the flow is to high you can actually pull the flesh of its skeleton

I have candy cane and radioactive trumpets. They are under a overhang. You should be good.

I got my first hammer 2 months ago. I have a 24" deep 125 gallon tank and I put mine on a rock at the bottom center of the tank. It seems super happy there, and is sprouting 2 baby heads at its base already for what its worth.
