Roughed up Open Brain Mushroom

Hello, i have an unfortunate question. We bought and Open Brain Mushroom and it was doing well for a few days.

We woke up this morning and noticed the chocolate chip starfish was lying on top of it. It turns out it was eating it. The open brain has quite a few loose parts too it and has been roughed up a bit.

We have since moved the Chocolate Chip to another tank.

Our question is, will the mushroom recover? thanks,

Leah

I've never heard of an open brain mushroom. Is it an open brain coral or some kind of mushroom?

I would think it would recover but that looks like a brain coral not a mushroom.

If I had a Chocolate Chip SF do that to my prized open brain, I would stuff him in the blender and set it on Frape'.

Gosh he sure looks bad, kinda makes ME feel bad too. My open brain is the best part of the reef.
IMHO he should recover. Leave him be for a few days and make sure you don't have any shrimp or predators in there. They may finish him off. After 2-3 days I would feed him to help him heal faster. But for now, just pray!
