    What kind of coral is it specifically. Looks like a soft coral like xenia .... I can not tell because the polyps are not open.

    You want to watch for brown jelly disease, google it so you know what it looks like if you have never seen it. You could also increase flow to the area within reason. Is the coral removable or is it attached to the rock work?

    Looks like xenia to me too. As stated look for brown jelly. I would think it's ok though, that stuff is hard to kill.
