Coral issues

Had major tank crash caused by a sea cucumber we think. Lost fish but corals hung on Did massive water change and added additional filtration. Water cleared. All parameters good. The leather coral seemed very withdrawn and limpy until last night. Opened up. Seemed to be on the amends. Earlier today. Had tear in it. Now tentacles are off and it shed its skin. What is going on?

It`s called sloughing. It happens to all leather corals. In a few days he will be back to normal only to do it again in 3-6 weeks. It`s a normal process.
