Ouch, really not looking good, but you can still see some color there. I wouldn't rule it out yet.

Give it some time, it might come back, still has some color.

I would be very surprised if that came back from being stung by a bubble coral, and even more surprised that you put it near a bubble coral at all. For future reference it's always a good idea to research corals before putting them next to each other...

If it's been like that for more than two days it's a done deal

Before you talk to someone like they are a moron, I had it on a SINGLE frag rack but lowered it even lower to the sand. And the bubble coral is easily 4 inches away, it was the shot of the camera.

Definitely not looking good. I have seen corals come back from worst.

Yeah. It's looking a little better. I think my cleaner wrasse is picking at it so I moved it to another tank

Mine does not bother corals.
He will bother snails, especially if one gets flipped wrong side up.

you know he seemed to be leaving them alone but if they go in even a little (maybe something brushed up against them) that is when he goes in... Its weird.... leaves all softies and polyps and sps alone so he went into the frag tank now until I can figure out what to do with the bugger.

He did it to all three of my LPS (hammer, frogspawn, torch) so I moved them to another tank and they looking like they might be coming back from the dead.

he might end up going swimming with the mantis in the mantis tank if he keeps this up... although scampi (my mantis) is a little baby that gets constantly spooked so he probably wouldn't do anything anyways.

Attached. I had another frogspawn have some issues but they all look to be recovering. Stupid wrasse :blown:
