How old is your tank, how long have you had Hammer? I'm sure somebody more experienced than me can help but those questions need to be answered for sure.

A pic would help. What are your parameters? And what type of lighting do you have?

And flow what type of flow is it getting. It may be unhappy.

They tend to like moderate flow and moderate lighting. How long have you had it?

Here's some info on the hammer coral

When you say spot on I still like to see numbers. I know I may be a pain but spot on means what?

What's your alk,cal,trates,trites,ammonia,pH,phosphates and salinity at?
