Look into a magfloat, the inside portion will float to the top if it comes loose

It depends, injury is the biggest cause of LTP coral demise. They are very prone to infection when injured, since they are a sigle polyp, infection can mean a quick almost certain death.

I would begin dipping the coral daily in a coral dip, like Kent's Tech D or Seachems coral dip, this may help keep the coral from becoming infected. Once the area has healed over you can stop dipping the coral.
