Hammer coral vs red crab help

I have a hammer coral.and recently I had bought a neon orange crab and I believe the crab tried to eat my hammer, I yhink something went on between the to. But my hammer looks bad and idk what to do. Like is there any hope, throw it away, I just dont know how to go about caring for it. Plz help.... when I first got my hammer it was great big and happy then a day after I added the crab my hammer has looked not very good. And my friend had gotten an emerald crab and it was attacking his feather duster. I asked the lfs owner and they said it was coral and reef safe so what the heck..

I would put the crab in your sump for now if yo have one. Coral skeleton looks cool, so why would you throw it away?

It doesn't look dead yet but it looks pretty unhappy so I say catch the crab and don't give up on the hammer.
