Dying Goniopora

Hey there. We purchased 2 goniopora corals this past wednesday for our 8 gallon tank at school to transfer later to our 55 gallon. We live at school and went home this weekend and made sure parameters were normal before we left. We just got back to school a few hours ago and one of the gonioporas was dead. It looked like it was shedding its tissues. Will the other one die as well? It was open before we left, but now is closed. Our pulsating xenia, zoes, and torch corals are all fine and dandy. Can anyone tell us what happened? And will the other one die?

I don't know. I know they like a lot of flow. It's not a real clear picture.

Do you feed it? That's generally why they do poorly I've heard, lack of food....?
