This is the only hard coral I have and it has been in my tank for about 3 months. Any help would be very greatful. Many thanks

    Yep it looks dead,
    For what it’s worth I’ve never had much joy with candy canes either.

    I have a candy cane I bought 4 years ago and it went from 2 heads to 7 over that time and I have had to split it.

    I had one die back and it looked ill a little while ago and moved it To more high water flow area where it has come back to full life and is growing again.

    I did speak to my LFS about these a couple of years ago and they did say sometimes they can get an infection that causes die back.
