Sorry to hear about your LPS troubles. I've heard that some people's tanks just aren't nice to euphilias and they can never keep them alive. I wish I could tell you why.


I do know that the lights probably aren't the problem though. I've kept frogspawn and hammer under 32 watt PC. It just grew more slowly.


Flow might be a problem. With frogspawns and hammers, you want the tenticles to be waving in the current oh-so-gently, and softly. Just enough to make them move. IME hammers can take some pretty high flow, but not direct flow.

I think your lighting is too low. I would use double that, if not triple as a minimum for low light corals.
