N00bies are paranoid about this sorta stuff man lol.

Yeah, I bought a small hammer frag a long time ago. I got it because it was a real pretty white color. It turned into a skeleton within a couple days. Thinking back now, it's normal color probably wasn't white. It was probably bleached and dying when I bought it. It really sucks when a healthy coral dies without any apparent reason

It might heal up, you never know. It might help to put it in the lowest flow possible.

Two things I would consider. One is flow. Too much flow will cause trauma to the fleshy part. This in turn will cause the dreaded brown jelly disease. Did you see it fall apart? The other thing will be did you see anyone picking on it? Some fish love eating the fleshy part of the skin on hammers. I have a piece that is 14 yrs old and as big as a volleyball but it does take the right conditions.
