Dying coral

It looks like it ripped in half somehow and it's all fuzzy should it remove this coral or is it natural???

I think its a leather, right? Hard to tell from the picture. Softies like that can shed their skin, so to speak. It could be that, or damage. It would slime up if hurt, so check for that. Got anything to eat corals? A stone crab of mine used to eat corals and drag their skeletons into his lair

I removed it from the tank it was in just now and put it in this one cause I was getting worried it left some yellow sediment on the rock it was on on the other tank?

It definitely doesn't look so hot. How long have you had it? Is it in a high flow area? How about high light? Big softies like that like less flow and medium light.

Having just moved it will cause the coral some stress, so you won't see any polyp extension for a little while. Since its a new buy the coral was probably already stressed in your other tank. Best thing to do now is wait. Watch to see if the polyps start to extend in a few days. Signs of stress would be bleaching (turning white), slimey or lots of mucus, or crumblely looking (when parts of it start to die). If the coral is stressed, try moving it to a lower part of the tank, with less flow.

Of course, the tank you moved it to is healthy right? Poor water quality would only make things worse
