Doesn't look like it, just closed up. They do that from time to time.

Anytime you change the location,or handle them it can take awhile for them to open up again.

Along with what Ricksreef said, if there's a parameter change they'll close up, so if they all close up at the same time, check all your parameters.

I'm way new to this so people that know all this can easily tell me to **** it. Lol.

But mine usually will close up when I do water changes and then open up slowly after. Then look all happy like nothing is wrong.

And I went away for a week and had a friend take care of the tank and he didn't top it off. So then I got back my pump was burned out and was getting ride of bubbles under rocks for a month. An they were closed up on me for a few days bit opened back up later like nothing happened.
