Just picked up a cabbage coral. The tank boss "Blingy" blenny decided great resting spot and stares out at us mostly. Doing my research , after already buying the cabbage coral, of course. I found a site saying that cabbage produces terpenes that can harm other corals like my hammers. Is this truly a concern or keeping them separately in the same tank is alright? I nursed my hammer back from almost nothing , it would be horrible too lose it now.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170417/afce3cb20b573cf65fce1ab2563a0dc5.jpg

As long as you've got plenty of circulation in the tank and you run some GAC the Hammer should be ok IMO. Water changes will also help. (dilution)

cabbage corals can look great one day and terrible the next. my large green cabbage doesn't sting anyone but wont like getting stung by the RBTA or any kenya tree, etc. the more flow the better, at least for mine. good luck.
