I'd say it's dead or dying with that much tissue ression it not likely to come back they do not like lots of flow either they are a moderate to low flow and not to intense of light it say just wait it out and see what happens

As long as there is tissue there is hope corals are very hardy actually

I'd try moving it, I'm inclined to think its getting too much light as well.

You should try, it can't hurt to try. It will only get worse without food.

Feeding it after lights out should help. It's not dead as stated earlier, it's just not happy. I've noticed Tracyphyllia brains are a bit more finicky than most LPS. I've noticed mine deflate like that unless I kept up with regular feedings. HTH

I think the fight is over for my brain. Today twice as muck skeleton is showing. Last night it didn't have feeders out either. I put mysis right in the mouth and get no reaction. Pardon the pun, but I think I'm brain dead. Very upset.
