Hammer Coral Skeleton slimy?


Recommended Posts

I have kept several types of Euphyllia including torches and frogspawn. 

If my memory serves me correctly the torch and frogspawn had a chalky rough branching skeleton. However, my very healthy hammer which is splitting, has a slimy smooth skeleton from head down to its base. Almost looks like an uncooked steak bone. Its so slippery if I pick up the coral I have to be careful it does not slip out of my hands.


Is this normal for branching hammers?
