Ric not looking so hot

Okay, so I bought this ric on 1/22 from an LFS. It was a cut, so you can see where it was obviously not completely healed up, but it was looking good.

Here it is when I got it:


However, the past 72 hours or so, it's getting smaller (for lack of a better term). It's been inflated less and less, and now today, it looks like this


Any ideas? That's the same rock, it hasn't been touched or moved since it went in.

All water params are in spec.

Ziggy suggested I move him higher in the tank - more light and flow. Did that yesterday, no changes yet.

I would have tried less light by shading. Many red morphed-corals do not tolerate intense light levels and can stress even more if they have been damaged, accidentally or purposely. Hope it comes back around whatever the case may be

I wish you hadn't have said that, cuz now I got conflicting info and I'm going out of town tomorrow for a week and won't be able to monitor it.

I agree with James. Less light and still with good flow.
