sorry about reviving an old post but: IME many soft corals retract their polyps and shrink, sometimes for days at a time, and often slough off a waxy layer, I'd imagine it's an anti-algae behavior.

Since the post is a week old, OP, how is the coral now?

Thanks for the reply, I have moved it further up in the tank, into a bit more flow and it looks much better now, and what you have said makes sense, as my tank did have a lot of algae but I have cleared 99 % of that out
