Help , suicidal coca worm ?

K so about 2 weeks ago I notice one of the " heads " of my coca worm floating around , after I fed my sun coral and other fish and put lights on the second one is now off. Is this normal in the growth phase or is it a goner now ?
Since I have gotten it the tube has grown maybe just shy of 1/4 inch

Happy to update that the coca worm is still alive , I forgot to mention just before the " heads " fell off I had put a re mushroom and the far end of the coca worms tube , would that have done it ? I always though mushrooms where on the friendly side of coral spectrum.
