How is it falling apart? Is it floating to other parts of the tank and if so are those pieces attaching? If you want you can rubberband a piece to a plug and see how it goes, I've found glue to not work so well....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I plugged the biggest piece to live rock and the other pieces seem to be attaching

Thats the joy of that coral, it will split off and float around until it latches onto another surface. it;s like the plague in my biocube, it has broken off in a dozen spots so now I have like a dozen little corals all over. LOL

Glad it's not dying!

I know it looks pretty bad, but at night mine looks pretty close to that. lol Just need patience and to allow the corals to get used to the tank.
