What do Euphyllia Corals look like: The identification of the Hammer Coral E. fimbriata is determined more so by the shape of the polyp and not necessarily their delicate skeletal structure. They form large colonies with corallite walls forming on the outer edges with the polyps having the ability to completely retract into the skeleton. Polyps extend during the day and only partially at night.

The tentacles of the Hammer Coral have hammer or "T" shaped tips. Though it has a straighter and flatter tip than its cousin the Anchor Coral, whose tips are more "C" shaped or sausage shaped, there can be curvature in the tip. The colors of the tentacles can be brown or tan with green or cream tips. When feeding, the individual tentacles can elongate 2 to 3 times their normal state. Some colonies can reach over 3 feet (1 m). Lifespan is unknown.

Euphyllia Coral Care: The E. fimbriata can be moderate to easy to care for. Provide sufficient lighting and good turbid water flow, that is neither too strong or too weak. The availability of passing food will also contribute to their success. Using trial and error, by placing coral specimens in different areas of the tank, will eventually result in locating a favorite spot. This will be evident by full polyp expansion and feeding.
