I'd like to add in here too.  I'm new and my first coral was a 2-head hammer.  It did extremely well until 2 weeks ago, it started to wither.  I'm baffled.  I thought it was my nitrates that were too high.  I went on a nitrate extermination drive with NoPox and Orca Lab Nitraguard.  All the other corals are doing well still, except for the poor hammer.  I do expect casualties, but I want to understand what I did wrong.  My parameters were always within normal sea-water levels.  My Nitrates are now 5 ppm and undetectable Phosphates.  I googled "Zero Phosphates Hammer Dying" and got a couple of hits that the zero phosphates are the issue.  Any idea?

Stories are too similar, I'm now more convinced it's the NoPox and the low / undetectable phosphate levels.
