Is there something near it that could be stinging it, or releasing chemicals? Is it in an area with decent flow? Do you see slime sloughing off of it?

yes, it makes sense. Move the sinularia away from it. Make sure it has good flow and just give it some time. The leather has "shed". It should be ok in a few days.

I have observed some soft, branching corals, I assume to be Sinularia, with very long,thin sweepers. This was in a dealers tank, so I am not sure of their stinging ability. Also, leather corals will release terpenoids. Terpenoids are "chemical weapons"released in the water to claim territory, usually affecting the coral down current.As for placement, most soft corals of the leather type enjoy medium light and current.

There is alot of available information on the net regarding coral issues. Just do a google search in your spare time.
