Not sure what "falling between the cracks" is..
But if the soft coral hasn't dissolved/disappeared then it can certainly be saved or has the chance..

Some of the hardier sps can go weeks. I had bits of monti caps and setosa fall into cracks only to find them weeks later still alive. Some loss of color but alive.

One of my mushroom was lost inside the rock work only to be discovered after a couple of week but by then it shrink to a fraction of its original size and took some time to recover back

I’m always amazed at how resilient they are. Just move in slowly into light.

I just discovered a leather coral growing underneath a rock and has finally poked it's head out. It has been under the rock for at least a month and now that it's getting light it's growing fast. I had rubber banded a leather to the rock and it pinched itself off and floated under the rock.
