toadstool

hi its been a while my tank has been doing great and just in the last couple of days my toadstool leather has been leaning over and turning a darker color, and today when i got home i noticed that it looks like it may be spliting . I have seen my hairy mushrooms split. and it looks very similar to that, even the stalk looks like this whats going on

Do you have any other leathers near it or any other LPS corals near it?

Torch corals can have sweeper tentacles that can reach up to 6 inches.

I would look at night. Many LPS corals extend their sweepers at night to graze off of the water column. They can become much longer then they appear.
