If it still has polyps it's still alive I would put it in an area where there be some good flow going to it and maybe keep it on the bottom of the tank if it's getting to much light for now.... Or if you had a frag tank you can put it in there to nurse it back to health. JMO

This brings up a point I would like to make. Unwanted corals and algae should never and I mean never be disposed of by dumping into the ocean. These animals and plants can and will take over and kill everything if there is no natual control in the area that they are dumped. ie: fish that eat them,or any other natural preditory means. Please don't ever dump unwanted AQ stock into the ocean ever. Once in the AQ if no one wants it then freeze it, bag it and dispose of it. "Caulerpa" is a prime example. It is taking over the mediterainian and California. It is blamed on home Reefers dumping it When in truth it was Jacgues Cousteau's Reef display (a public AQ) that dumped it into the ocean. So in short, DO NOT DUMP INTO THE OCEAN.

I said that from seeing folks who had it and it took over their tanks ..killing other corals off ..I also said mine was slow to grow ...
As for it being limp give it a couple days to wake up and acclimate
If you dont see it waking up acclimating have some carbon and extra water on hand if you need it..

They are both soft corals, the zenia have feathery tentacles as the anthelia have long slender tentacles and stocks. both kind of pulse in the currents.
