Trumpet not doing well?!?!

Ive had it for 3 years and its been perfect....until now!

Simply put, for no apparent reason its starting to disintegrate.

Any advice? All other corals are doing fine.

Salinity: 1.025
Ammonia: 0
Nitrate: 5
Phosphate: .25

I'd have to second it being stung by the coral. You can see the tentacles reaching out to it in the first picture.

The good news is that trumpets are very resilient in the fact that as long as there is ANY tissue on the damaged heads left, there's a very good chance of revival...
