I don't know much about these i have seen them in my LFS. Can you post up a picture of it and also list your paramaters. How big is your tank and what is your routine for PWC?

I'd think it might be starving(?) They are filter feeders and require constant, pristine parameters. Along with your parameters, how old is your tank? Another potential factor is if you have any fish that are labeled as "with caution" in a reef b/c they might be picking on the sea apple. I think it has something to do with parameters and lack of food though.

All I know about sea apples is that they are extremely difficult and will kill everything when they die. So I avoid them. One of my LFS has had one for a long time, no one has bought it, so don't think I'm alone in that.

Poor fish probably don't realize that by picking on it they are killing themselves.
