Can you show a picture and give us some more info on your tank like lighting, size, and current parameters?

Thanks for responding, I will later take picture after work, I have 34 gal RSM130D, temp bet 77-79F, salinity 1.025, ph 7.8, dKh 8, calcium 450, nitrate less than 0.1, phosphate 0.03-0.04, lighting LED 52watts, plus a supplement LED 72watts 60deg optics not directed on the plate coral.. I have another golden yellow just about 4 inches away and it's thriving well. I'm suspecting the frogspawn has killed it because there's one time that he got so close to frogspawn as he moves?

Well, that is a possibility I'd guess. I'd be interested in seeing it still, but it might simply be an issue of needing relocated...though it might just move itself back. Maybe move the frogspawn if needed.

That's the purple fungia at the bottom, completely bleached. I'll get a close up pic of that tomorrow. I don't know if it will still revive or do I need to remove that from there?

That appears to be a gonner. Any flesh left on it? I doubt the frogspawn killed the entire thing. If it was stung, you could see a scar or bruise, but not the decline of the entire fungia, IMO.

I agree with X on this. Fungia can usually push sand off of themselves, which yours is def not doing at this time. Keep the skeleton in there incase it decides to reproduce after death. As for cause of death, there isn't anything close enough that I would consider a danger to it. I'd assume it was damaged somehow. I had one die on me like that as well, but currently have several doing fine in my tank.

Just put him behind your rockwork, worse comes to worse you have a free piece of live rock.
