The other day I found one of my turbos in the middle of the tank upside down closed up.
So I poked at him and flipped him over.
He opened up moved around a bit and closed up.
I left him for a day and he was still in the same position the next day.
The next day, I pulled him out, thinking he was dead and as i was moving him he came out again.
I held him near the glass he sort of grabbed on to it, but not enough to hold himself.
After a few attempts I left him on the live rock where he's just moving a little bit.
They Day after, I poked him and he was dead...the smell confirmed it.
They next day Another is laying in the middle upside down..barely moving
Any Ideas would be greatly appreciated.
