a bit of an update....im in the process of turning the solana into a euphyllia dominant tank so im trying to trade off and sell of the other corals. been busy this past week scouting around for some hammers. managed to pick up a pretty purple and green hammer head from diego and a nice aussie piece from MA.

did some aquascaping today.....so the right side of the tank would be hammers of different sorts, the left would be full of froggys/octopus/grape corals.....if i can find them and the sand bed would be full of torches. I've been doing some snooping around online and found out that torches should be kept separate as they tend to be more aggressive.

let me know what you guys think!

Definitely far from collecting specimens! if anybody wants help me out with this project and sell/donate me a few frags of euphyllia, please PM me!





so far in terms of euphyllia i have

green wall hammer
aussie toxic green wall hammer
purple tipped green branching hammer
green tipped branching hammer
green tipped indonesian torch
aussie gold torch

thanks guys, I'm planning on picking up a few more soon. also for the most part i plan on keeping torches on the sandbed. does anybody have any issue with torches stinging frogs n hammers?
