Pull the rock out with him attached before it dies in your tank

Just looked in the tank before I left to work and it has it's tentacles back but there kind of flimsy. I do a water change once a week. My water is good although my Alk went from 8-7 three days ago and then the next day my ammonia went up just a little. I also just changed light went from current orbit marine to 160w led light

how old is the tank? Any thoughts on why you have an increase in NH3?

Tank is 4 months old and I have no idea I'm doing a water change tomorrow hope the NH3 goes back down to 0 and the Alk goes up to 8 again.

The water change should help but something is still off which you'll need to figure out. What size tank?
