My rose BTA

I have had my Rose BTA for over 8 months and it has been great. Over the past two weeks it has not been opening as it did before and it has stopped hosting my pair of true percs. Yesterday it started to wonder. It left it's spot that it has been in for months and is now stuck to the glass. All water parameters are great with exception of PO4, which is just above .2. I noticed it's foot is huge and the cap is shunk up. Does it look okay? Any suggestions? Thanks! Lando

Sorry for posting the pic twice. I Forgot to mention, I think it is getting enough food and light. It does not look bleached and it's color is good. I have about 4 watts/gal of CF lighting. No top on the tank.

retracted and roaming I think are deffinite signs it's not happy about something. Phosphates shouldn't bother it... but lighting can.. how old are your bulbs? cleaned the protective covers on them recently? Sg ok? I don't know a lot about anenmoes so i can't really offer much more than that. I'm sure you'll get some more experienced help soon!

Bulbs are just over 4 months old. I will clean the plexi-glass cover and SG is 1.025.

temp is steady at 80 and I feed froozen mysis or krill every three days. I do not target feed the anenome, it just gets what is floating around the water.

Hey Lando is there anything in the tank that could be picking with it?

Have you added any more flow, or changed the flow recently?

I have not noticed anything picking at it. I diid change power heads a few weeks ago, but it never seemed to bother it. Maybe I will try target feeding some krill. Running out of ideas here.
