candy cane

Hey guys i just got a candy cane frag and it came priority USPS, however the coral was in dark brown water and slimy by the time it arrived here. The color is good, cannot make out any definte mouths yet. So is this coral already doomed? Right now i went ahead and drip acclimated it and placed it in the tank. So let me know what you think i dont need anything upsetting a perfect tank.
Thanks

Assuming it MAY be still alive, Ya got in enuf of a flow area (but not too heavy) so it can shed excess mucus?

When you first get them they are covered with mucous anyway. You should be OK

yeah but the shipping method was really bad just thermos with no space for air, filled with water and the coral just sitting on the bottom. the candy died over night or basically lost its head and more exoskeleton than polpy by the next morning so instead of it screwing up my tank i threw it out and will no longer buy from this reefer. thanks for the help though
