Is my torch coral dying? How can I bring it back?? Please help

Please look at my torch coral.
It has deflated and drooping.
It was hosted by a pair of clowns but for the past two days I have moved it from the top of the tank to the bottom. Since then the clowns have left it alone.
It has been like this for about a week.
Normally it is a orange and blue colour but it has changed to a pale yellow.
My tank is 20 gallons. I also have a mushroom coral, and a grass type coral. Click image for larger version

ID:	221598 this is what it use to look like. Last two week the clown fish which had hosted it had laid eggs underneath.
