I have no idea what happened. I looked at the tank a few hours ago and the coral looked very happy.
Checking params now. Any help appreciated! Thanks!

NH3/NO2=0, NO3 ~0.2, pH 8.3, Temp 79 F, Salinity 1.025, KH 8.2, Calcium 430, Phosphate 0.02

Something interesting has happened as well.. it looks like the torch ejected a tentacle or other long stringy piece from in or near its mouth and it is now looking happier.

Also interesting, the things I assumed were pods are coming around it. Perhaps they're a pest? Has anyone else seen any such behaviour from their torch?

I would say that reminds me of a famous line from Forest Gump. For those who have seen it, you know what I am talking about, LOL!!! ;Hilarious

Definitely looks like a number 2.

Begs the question can fish smell? If so Does fish poop stink more than coral poop?

Hahaha wow, I feel as relieved as the coral probably does! ;Facepalm

Looks like a full recovery:
