Change it's location and you may be able to save what is left of the live coral. It should be in medium flow and medium light areas of the tank with these specifics:
Temperature: 72 78 F.
pH: 8.1 8.3.
Salinity: 1.024 1.026 (1.025 preferred)
Alkalinity: 8 12 dKH.
Nitrates: <10 ppm.
Phosphates: <0.10 ppm.
Calcium: 350 450 ppm.
Magnesium: 1200 1350.

Check the water quality. Maybe do a huge water change just to ensure the water is good.

Make sure no other corals are attacking it at night. A lot of corals send out sweeper tentacles that kill nearby corals.
