Bought this from a gentleman on craigslist who said it was a head of aussie gold torch. Doesn't really look like that to me.

It's a fairly small frag and has only been in the tank since last night.

The tentacles seem rather short and the tips are almost hammer shaped. Color right now is pink/beige

I don't really care since it was super cheap but would like an idea of iit's final form :)

Thoughts?

I agree, though the tentacles are just not quite hammer shaped...

Closest thing I see on googling is a "micro hammer"

it looks almost exactly like this pink hammer (at least that's what the op says it is but it doesn't look like his other longer tentacle hammer)

It's cute and I'll be super happy if it end up looking like that.

doesn't look very torch like to me . It does look more hammerish but give it some time to acclimate you never know.

It's a branching hammer. Pretty common for them to have lopsided or pointier heads, especially at that size.
