Woooo hooo! We have another convert! Glad to hear this thread is making a tiny bit of sad coral at a time.

Mc-cro: nice find! Keep an eye on that orange/red sponge. Some sponges like that are invasive and can cause some damage to the coral...or the sponge could decay due to the treatment and release some toxins (so monitor ammonia). I think you'll be fine, but that's about the only other advice I can give. Definitely keep it in lower flow - the coral should be able to expand fully without the flow pushing the tissue against the skeleton. Lower light until the coral starts to heal up...then you can move it up a bit.

See my homepage for more information on rescuing coral!
