    I had a four head that lost one head. Everything else in the tank is/has been doing fine. Left it alone. About six weeks later, the head started coming back. I wouldn't toss it.

    I see the problem in the last picture it looks like it is angry lol try and keep the hermits away from it. I would also move it down to the bottom of the tank until its use to your lights

    I had a similar thing happen to my frogspawn a few months ago.

    It was fine, everything esle was fine too. Then a head and half another started disappearing, a third head looked fine.
    I have a thread on it- and solved it.

    I have a full grown Blue spotted watchman Goby who was ripping the polyps off and spitting them out!

    Hope you figure it out.

    Will consider moving it lower, its glued though still keeping an eye on it. If the other heads start going downhill I will move it, thanks.
