Any chance of saving my torch?

I recently purchased a torch coral. I have 3 other torches in the tank (separated) that are all fine.

This one on day 1 was great day 2 started closing day 3 I'm seeing some skeleton on it

Its in an area of medium light and low flow, I don't see any brown jelly, not sure what I can do for this?

I have a love hate relationship with my euphyllia. Sometimes they will do this even after nothing changes. A couple big water changes usually bring them back, that is my only suggestion. Might try slightly lower flow and light for better acclimation.

Sometimes coral just doesn't make a transition, good luck

Thanks As of today its all skeleton. I'm gonna leave put as I've read by some miracle months later they can come back (doubt it). Sucks cuz all my other torches etc are super happy.

I had a skeleton that I thought was dead. A few months later I noticed little heads popping out all over. They may have started coming out sooner, but that's when I noticed. Leave it be.
