Got a great deal on a 4 1/2 " branching hammer at the LFS today...granted, it was a deal for a reason. When they received the coral, one side, about 3/4" seems void of tentacles. It has been in their reef tank for a few weeks and isn't losing any more flesh, so I guess this is a good sign. I'm wondering if it will grow over the bare area or just continue growing without it. I hope it doesn't die all together, but I suppose that is always possible. Any advice, opinions?
