Not sure why this happens to my LTA from time to time. As you, my parameters are good and stable, lighting unchanged. Mine will do that for a night or part of a day. I feel like I should almost dispose and then, right back to normal. Been in my tank for over a year.

Wow that bad boy is a beaut! Mine had been like this for a couple days, steadily getting smaller looking worse and worse. On the bright side the other fish have more room to swim without the danger of entangled death!

Whenever something like that happens I do a water change. It's always worked for me. Try that before anything drastic.

It is common for anemone or soft corals to shrink when lights are out at night. If it happens while lights are on then it must be something else that make them do that. I consider anemone to be a good indicator if there is sudden change on your water parameter. A quick fresh water top off done manually will definitely affect it or a cheap heater with 2 deg differential .
