I notice mine do this and perked back up a week later. As long as the tissue isn't actually receding I think you're ok. It is weird it has done it twice now though.

I haven't actually witnessed it feed but it is sitting right inline with a power head and I feed right above it. I might have to directly feed it some brine

I'm not sure. It is sitting across the tank from the power head and it's only a 240. I know they like "moderate" flow. I'll make it indirect tonight and see if that is the cause
