I defiantly appears to be sulking. What u can see of the polyp still has good color it's just shrunken back! Maybe it is splitting?? I'll hope for that. If that's the case how long did it take yours to open up again?

Just remember still get plenty of food like plankton, or the coca cola bottle trick, cut the top off a cola bottle and rest some chopped Mysis, needs a lot of energy if it is splitting, as before keep an eye out for rtn, bjd, polyp detachment if you can see the stingers, it's always good, even if it's just a little, it's a bit like at night sometimes mine recede in so much I think the worst, maybe a pic?

Just see the little purple stingers but really small, under atinics - blue should be luminous green and luminous pink in the centre but mostly skeletal poylp base

It has shown improvement I actually caught a peppermint shrimp picking at it so I brushed the shrimp away and it just kept coming back so I moved the frag into my fuge. I made a small rack out of egg crate and within 3-4 hours it was looking better. Could the shrimp be the issue? Never heard of them picking at corals but who knows. Also one of my actinics had burnt out and I didn't realize it. That would account for 54watts of lighting going missing with I would guess that could have some negative effects

It's very likely that the shrimp was just picking off some decomposing matter, and actually trying to clean the coral off. I don't think the shrimp could be the reason for the recession.

Not do much damaging it, just that they are receding as its annoyed by the shrimp clambering on it, if it's improving, keep an eye on it, my recede sometimes when my tangs swim a but to close to it
