    I got a torch coral today and just today he was out and happy, then a hermit fell and bumped him. He shrank back in his skeleton and released a red stringy thing. Also his tentacles look deflated and small but he still has his color. Any ideas on what happened?

    IMO - It has pooped
    the red/ brown mucus is waste

    give it until tomorrow and it should be out again

    It is a dry heat, yeah right !
    The coral will most likely be just fine. Sounds as though it expelled it's fluid and some waste, common.
