Is this Elegance Coral dead?!

I got this elegance coral a month and a half back and it was fine for the first couple of weeks but then stopped opening up. In the last week or so it looks like it is disintegrating. Could you see the pics and say if I should still keep it in the tank or remove it. Thanks!

It is not looking good but I would not take it out yet. I can see some flesh in there and you never know if it will regrow.

I think it will die off, but as Jayball says; There is a small chance that it can still grow back. So I would keep it there as long as there is still some flesh left.

Thank you. I still see little bit of flesh in the coral . Will wait until all the flesh is gone. A recovery would be sweet

I pick up corals that look like that for $5 from the local stores. In the right conditions, they can recover.

I never give up on a coral until algae grows out of its skeleton.

Place it in a very low water movement part of your tank and try some shade. It might get back at its feet but thats gonna be a miracle.
