Had to tear down the rock work yesterday to remove a nuisance fish. Torch corals went into a bin for about an hour and were quickly put back in after that was done. For the remainder of yesterday and all day today (so far) the torch has darkened in color and remained retracted.

Is it gonna die or could it recover? Below are before and afters.

EDIT: Sorry for the grammatical error in the title. Stupid autocorrect on my phone.

Its probably just stressed. I wouldnt touch it and just let it recover for a few days and see how it goes.

Yah I'm keeping my hands out, making sure all parameters are good, and not trying to mess with anything beyond that. Don't want to stress everything else and make the situation worse.
 

Do you take notice when your coral starts stretching or shrinking?
