Fell off? Did you place it in a low light, low flow area first and gradually move it to where you want it?

It came out of the bag straight into my tank and fell off. Lights were off for acclimation and just...blah.

Update

My Xenia is dying! It was completely shriveled up when I came home and the heads were discolored. I put it in a low flow area at the bottom of the tank because I think it was getting too much flow. That's the only thing I can think of that would cause this. Anyone know what's happening?!?!

You check your parameters for a spike? Were any of your fish bugging it?

I checked my param. All is good. It doesn't look like a snail or hermit touched it. It looks like its starving kinda. The stalks are shriveled and almost grey instead of the old bright golden brown.
