    Its a sponge. Take the piece out of the water for about 3 minutes. Most sponges can't take having exposure to air. If that doesn't work, I injuect most sponges with air from a syringe. It is possible that it may choke out your polyps. Usually the trick by taking the piece out of the tank for several minutes (often have to repeatseveral times also) does the trick.

    Good Luck

    Sponges are actually good to have though, they're among the best filter feeders out there.
