Need Help

Hi i bought this coral yestrerday for £40 and it was fine the white parts in the coral in the picture were originally green untill i woke up today and it was white. I then put my hand in and shook the coral to see if it would come off but then a brown string type thing came out off it and all the green parts came off and where the green parts were all closed up .


WHAT SHOULD I DO ? Is it Dead? And what is the name of this coral?

Welcome to AA!
It's dead. Looks like it was a branching hammer or frogspawn.

Looks like capts making his rounds.. it is dead.. no it wont grow back.. question is what are ur water parameters.. I take it u just bought it and it was healthy then.. your best bet is to find out why and go from there...

How long has your tank been up? what are your phosphates, nitrates, nitrites, etc?
