Purple Mushroom weirdness

Hi all. Mt purple mushroom is a single on a rock by himself no where near anyone that could harm him. For lack of a better way to describe it looks as if he is twisting himself in to a pinwheel! All other tank mates which include a plate (short tenacle), red shrooms, Xenia's et al are doing fine, no signs of stress. Temp is 79, sg is 1.025, Nitrites 0, Nitrates less than.05, Ammonia 0, no phosphates..yada,yada...anyway any guesses or seen before? Thanks.

how big was the tank? how often do you do a water change? do you dose anyting into your tank? do you feed your corals? one of mine did this for about a week i had low strotnium i added some in over a few days got my level up and he came right back real nice. im not saying this is your problem just teling you what happened to me. what test kits are you using?

Tank is 55g, water changes every other week, no dosing, feed invert frozen and liquid alternating. If it is strontium wouldn't it be having an effect on my other shrooms? Seachem test kits.

Light has not changed. Water flow however has been changed several times trying to decide what it likes better..more flow/less flow. I have a Koralia #4 and I have tried several different angles to make him happy. On the other end of tank I have a #2 to keep the Xenia happy...he's pulsing like crazy. Soooo

Thanks guys. I appreciate it. You have been helpful. We ruled out or at least confirmed a few things so that narrows the possibilities.

Look anything like the pictures here?

My guess is that it's trying to multiply. A picture would help though if you could get one of what yours looks like.
