Is My Duncan Coral Dying?

I have had this duncan coral since it was just 1 head. Now it is big. 4 days ago is sunk in and has not come back out. It has done this before, but just for a few hours. NOTHING in the tank has changed AT ALL! I have 3 watt led's so it's not my bulbs. I have 2 Skimmers on the tank. Don't really dose anyting but Microbacter7 every now and then. Salinity is a constant 1.025. I'm not a noob but this Duncan has got me nervous.

It is probably telling you something is going on.

What exactly are your parameters? Have you kept a log of them over time? What temperature is the tank running?

Posting test results will help everyone understand Duncan's are really hardy so if there not well there must be something off

I would say it's definitely not dying it just looks like something is irritating it
