I can't get a pic right now sorry, but what I meant by dead was that it is really white.

But it could be dead right? It had been out of water for awhile, and do you have enough lighting?

I don't have enough lighting but i didnt have it out of water for that long of a time.. Less time than it would take for me to frag the coral... If it was one and was big enough.

Lol, great news, my cycle started!!! My ammo is at .25 ppm... Or .025 forget which one but it's the second lowest on the API test kit. And I payed closer attention to the rest of the rock and found tube worms, and clams or something like that.. Also a lot of corraline algae an these little red branchy things that are on a piece of rock. They are hard.
