Yeah that's what I'm hoping is going on. Internet isn't being helpful.

I've been researching it too, nothing so far as I can see matches what your going through. I did see something about them spitting eggs into the water to reproduce but I don't know if they only do that when a mate is present. They aren't asexual. I have read a couple reports they they do have a habit of spitting though, can't get anything distinctive with your picture. It's sucks you can't get an answer right now, call your LFS first thing.

Yeah I spent hours online and didn't see anything either. I'll call my lfs in the morning. Thanks for doing some research for me. It's feeding tentacles have been out more since I changed bulbs in my light fixture. It's definitely weird though.

Mine sucks water in and inflates itself also. This is different, it has several large swollen bumps in it. In the last picture you can see an air bubble about to escape from one of It's mouths. I'm hoping it is not a parasite or bubble algae inside its flesh.
