View Full Version : New coral - What kind is it?

01/17/2016, 02:14 PM

It's only been in my tank a couple hours now, so it's not completely happy yet.

They sold it as a "Hammer Coral", but I've been given bad information more than once (and it looks like a torch to me), so I'm asking the experts!

Thanks for your help!

Correct, it is a torch.

Can anyone tell me what this is? I'm guessing frogspawn .

Yes frogspawn. e. divisa

Thank you tweaked. I've been told that frogspawn can't be transparent? This one is and has white tips. Any ideas??

Its bleached, needs to be fed and kept in a low light area until it colors up.

Bleached is a broad term for too much light and or starved. Also stress, but some how the animal has expelled its zoox. As stated above, move to lower light/flow and feed. Keep water params on point and stable. GL

Yes I probably should have clarified my meaning of bleached as having expelled its zoox.

Thanks for the advice. I've been feeding twice a week with mysis shrimp should I up the feeding?

Every couple days is fine. Some have seen issues with over feeding however as the animals we keep do not have stomachs. Food has been thought to sit and rot if overdone. Just food for thought:lolspin:
