    Guess i didnt get it well enough into the rock. My blenny i am assuming tried to perch on it and knocked it over fully on its branches. It had to be like that for at least 8-10 hours. I replaced it but most of its tentacles are now gone and only a few remain.
    Should i keep it in tank in hopes it regrows? or toss it?

    May as well, there is a pretty good chance that it will grow back under the right conditions.

    If there is flesh left and it's not brown and slimy, leave it in. You only need a little bit left alive for the whole thing to grow back eventually.

    They may have just retracted from the fall and will return in time
