Duncan help!!

Why would my Duncan be all puffed (only word I can think of to describe it) up? I fed it 4 days ago, parameters are normal. Friday I did treat for flatworms using flatworm exit, thinking this is the reason. But I'd like to know for future reference if this is some sort of sign for something. I've had it for almost 3 weeks.

Actually both heads (plus a small one on the back) have the normal green center but its really pail because its so puffy right now. I bought it from a private sale, found the guy on Craigslist in my area. This pic was the day after I put it in, it's going to thrive in my tank I think!

Agreed. What kind of light is it under? Moving it up higher in the tank will probably help, it looks like a nice duncan frag to me! One of my favorite corals, you should enjoy it.

They are feeding, they look good. I agree with the others in that you should get some super glue gel and get them up out of the sand
