I swear by protein skimmers! It's probable water quality if it's been this long, what are your nitrates at?

High side 1.025? Temp? This coral needs high calcium around 450 maybe it's used it up that's why it's sulking all of a sudden?

Also the reason I ask what temp and S.G your running at as you need certain combinations to get the correct salinity

Well my sg is 1.025 and the temp is about 81. I don't have a chiller so it's on the high side
