Nothing else in the tanks is new or having any issues. Thanks in advance.

It wasn't stung that I'm aware of, but I did notice a curious hermit crab a few times. It seems to have just melted away. Should I remove it, or hold out hope for a miracle???

wow that thing looks horrible lol
Keep it in the tank! There have been many anecdotal reports of them growing new baby polyps weeks after their "death." Fungia's are generally such hardy animals so I'm sorry for your loss, but I think it's worth a try to see what happens in the coming weeks.
Thanks for the condolences. I have heard that they were fairly hardy as well, so I thought that I would give it a try. I must have gotten a lemon!
If your plate skeleton grows new polyps you'll get to have another try.
LOL, the lemon coral, the one coral no one ever wants to get.
What is your calc, Alk, and mag at?
+1 to just leave it in the tank for a good long time
dunno what the problem was--what's your SG at? how do you measure it? did you have it positioned on the sand bed? (where it should be)
do you think you could get a feeding response if you tried to feed it now?
How do you measure your SG? Maybe have a friend/LFS do a quick double check? It's prolly fine but definitely worth investigating imo
I just feed my orange plate pellets a few times a week. maybe 5 pellets at a shot. it loves to eat. leave it on sand. med flow. med light. its growing well so far. had it for 10months.
