Zoanthid wriggling around like mad

So just got a zoa colony last night, and it looks fantastic - nice mix of green and red polyps...

Odd question though...one of the polyps in particular is wiggling all over the place. Doesn't seem to be in any high flow or anything, it's wide open etc, but it seems to be wiggling itself around almost constantly....anybody seen anything like that???

The only time I've had a zoa wiggle around was when the base was damaged. One of my colonies is growing too rapidly and it's taking over my bicolor blennies home. He's not too fond of that so he'll pick at it and damage the base. A few days later it'll eventually wiggle off. When it does I just let it float around my tank hoping it'll attach somewhere else and begin a new colony.
