I had a pretty sick looking coral that came with the live rock when I set up my tank. It has shedded and looks like this. Am I correct that this is a finger leather coral? Is this how it should look if its healthy? How can I detatch it from the rock and move it to a different location? I've read about fragging them but how can I transplant it without harming it? It's in a location that I'd like to eventually put a little more "showy" piece!!
Also, is it normal that the "buds" aren't out at its base and will the mushroom that's encroaching on its space harm it?
