    i bought a nice hammer coral frag today and I brought it home and acclimated it and everything was well. Then I went to place it into the tank and it fell off the drag plug and the heads hit a rock and fell into the sand, now it does not look good at all, it looks like it lost tissue and the heads are damaged pretty bad. I epoxied it back onto the plug because I didn’t have any glue. Is there anything I can do to help it out? The block spots on the head weren’t there and it had slime with green tissue in it before.

    Get her low in the tank, and let it adjust, it'll be ok.

    Agree with the above. Put it on the bottom in gentle flow and let it recover. Itll be fine.
