Any hope for acro?

When I came home from work yesterday I noticed my acropora frag fell over and landed in my torch coral. The snails have knocked it over many times before but it never landed in another coral before. Ever since then I have seen no polyp extension and in one area it looks like a small piece of the tissue is peeling off. Is there a chance it can "come back to life" or is it pretty much history? My lesson learned this time is to get some coral glue and glue the frag disc down to a rock.

Depending on how bad it is, you may be able to frag part of it that wasn't affected.....or it may recover on it's own. Can you take a pic?

I agree with cccapt. It will either stop and heal on its own and if it doesn't you should frag it as soon as possible.
