Melting hammer

Anyone have an idea why my hammer is melting? Had about a week and it looked good until yesterday. It’s from Dong so I’m sure it’s user error on my end!

pH 8.3
Ca 440
Trates 5
dKh 8-9

Mini hammer literally 2 inches away is doing fine.

What type of light are you using and how about flow?
Anyway, I will give you another head as replacement. Try to mount it the way that its flesh at the bottom is not touching anything.

Razor light. Old style. Max 75/90%white/blue. Tank is 30” deep and coral is halfway down. Two Jeboa 40 opposite ends at about 50-60% random, mag 9.5 return with 4 foot head. Flow directed higher in tank (no direct blast on coral). Was doing really well, and then all of a sudden it looked like that. Just weird

If any of its flesh got scraped by the rock. It can start an infection.

Stop it. You don’t have to replace anything. I’m not complaining, ha ha Just never saw that happen before so I was curious what may have happened

I get that. It’s sort of slipped backwards into the hole in the rock after I put it there. Maybe it got damaged.
