Mine had a similar encounter with a saddle carpet anemone, initially looked a little worse than iyours but only got progressively worse and died. If it doesn't worsten pretty quickly I think yours has a chance. Good luck.

My neon orange plate coral is in recovery right now. Apparently the fish in the tank covered the coral with sand for a day and a bunch of it's flesh has receded and it just looks bad overall. I'm hoping now that I removed it from the sand it will have a chance.

Good luck with yours!!

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

Fungia corals can move themselves. You can't glue down what's not meant to be glued.
