Flipped Star polyp

I have a green star polyp which daily has been being flipped. At first thought I would think it was my wrasse but then my new powerheads came into mind. On saturday I added a Aquaclear 70 (400gph) and a rio 180 (120gph) and this was the first time my polyps flipped. Who do you think is the culprit. Thanks!

Well, if it happened right after the addition of another ph, I would think it is the culprit. A little superglue gel on the bottom of those star polyps may help.

Just wanted to bump it because this continues to happen daily, and I'm tired of taking off my lights and flipping it back over. Sorry

Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you. The superglue gel with cyanoacrylate in it is what's suggested for use with corals.
Your turbos could be moving the coral but I'm not sure they would do it every day. And gluing them will fix the problem either way.

Thank you but one more question can you purchase this at a Lowe's or Home Depot or is it only found at your LFS.

Thanks! Should I put the glue on in the tank or rip the coral off the liverock because it has attached itself slightly?

Can the rock be removed? I didn't realize it had already started to attach.
If that's the case, maybe using a toothpic would be a better alternative to hold it in place.
